Britannia Mill, Britannia Road (Morley) (1 comment)
Colour imageJune 1970. Image shows the newest building at the Britannia Mill of William Baines & Son in Britannia Road. By this time this was the only building of the mill left standing - the rest having been cleared away for new developments on the Howley Park Estate by Murco, Fastnet (Mermaid) and Asda. Instead of demolishing this building too, Asda decided to renovate it and turn it into their offices and technical department. The rusty metal in the foreground shows what had been thrown into the mill dam. The dam went from the height of the grass bank on the left hand side to the clay floor in the foreground. This brick building is of a type designed by T.A. Buttery, a local architect, about the time of World War 1 and could have been an expansion or fire replacement. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

Britannia Mill, Britannia Road (Morley)
Black & White image1865. Old lithograph by C. Goodall showing the Britannia Mill in Britannia Road. It depicts the earliest part, a three storey block with central hoist, dating from 1860. The mill manufactured textiles for over one hundred years but the majority of it was demolished in the 1960s. One building remained, thought to date from around the first World War. It was renovated as offices and a technical workshop for Asda in the early 1970s.
