Derwent Place, off Bath Road (Holbeck) (4 comments)
Colour image7th March 2008. View of Derwent Place, off Bath Road. On the left is Marshall's Mill which fronts Marshall Street. It was built as a water-powered flax mill in 1791 by John Marshall. Next to the mill on the right, at the end of Derwent Place is a narrow snicket called Union Place which leads to Marshall Street. The blue gates access the car park of Temple Works, an extension of Marshall's Mills housing the office and counting house. This was built between 1840 and 1843 and is noted for its Egyptian style architecture designed by Ignatious Bonomi for John Marshall. It is based on the Temple of Edfu and is grade I listed. One of the conical glass structures on the roof is visible. In the background the 32 storey Bridgewater Place contrasts with the old buildings. It stands at the corner of Victoria Road and Water Lane.

Marshall Street, Marshall's Mills (Holbeck) (1 comment)
Colour image2011. View of Marshall's Mills on Marshall Street. The original four-storey mill, situated on Water Lane, dated back to 1791-92 when John Marshall established his flax-spinning business; he drew water from the Hol Beck to power revolutionary machinery developed by Matthew Murray, who was employed as an engineer in Marshall's mill at Adel. The original complex burnt down before the age of photography but the six-storey building on the right here was part of a phase of development that took place between 1815 and 1831. The Egyptian-style Temple Works, seen here on the left, were added between 1838 and 1841 and were believed to house the largest single room in the world at the time. Together this complex was to employ over 2,000 workers, using 7,000 steam-powered spindles. The mill on the right, now a Grade II* listed building, was comprehensively redeveloped in the 1990s and is now used for offices. Temple Works, Grade I listed, is presently being used as an arts centre.

Colour image9th November 1999. View of Marshall's Mill, known as Temple Works, and located on Marshall Street. In recent years it has been the premises of Kay's mail order firm. While standing empty in 2008 one of the stone columns collapsed caused structural damage to the roof parapet. Since late 2009 the building has been used as an Arts Centre. At present (2010) it is undergoing repair work. Temple Works is Grade 1 listed.
