Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Hunslet & Victoria Mills - Leeds - June 2009 I_icon_minitimeSun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

I know most of the Yorkshire Crew have all visited here before, but for some reason it's taken me a while to see this great complex of 3 mills. There's plenty of history elsewhere on the forum so I'll be lazy and just say these flax mills date from the 1830's to the 1860's and are damn fine if you like your big old industrial beauties. Despite being somewhat bare inside they have an undeniable charm and you can see why they have been earmarked for residential conversion.

My tour guide was Mr Rich Boxfrenzy - cheers mate :thumb

Nice work you two, those time cards were still where you left them on Saterday. I would of invited you Rich but it was a bit spur of the moment as I had a short notice couple of hours to kill. Did you meet the homeless guy? Not a nice experiance when your on your own, he was hiding but I could see his shoulder behind the wall Shocked

Cheers Mex, i think the bit where the homeless guy lives was the one bit we didn't visit - was he in the upstairs bit between Bruces and the clothing place? We didn't go there as the mil porn was making us blind. I feel sad for him, not because he's homeless but because he's bad at hiding.

I feel sad now. Probably because I am a sad person.
