Woodlands Dyeworks, cottage

Woodlands Dyeworks, cottage
Undated. View shows a group of cottages at Woodlands Dyeworks, situated off Wood Lane. The mill chimney is seen behind. Said to date from 1601, the dyeworks had originally been a corn mill, and previous occupiers had included Benjamin Pullan and Thomas and Jacob Wood. In 1865 Benjamin Rowley took over the mill and used it for crushing sandstone from the adjacent quarry. It became a dyeworks in 1906 when Edward Crowther bought the property and he and his family ran a successful business until the Second World War. It was subsequently left to become derelict until Leeds Corporation took over the property in 1974, demolished it and landscaped the site.
