Hunslet Mill from Yarn Street (Knostrop)
Colour image18th November 1999. View of Hunslet Mill looking from Yarn Street to Goodman Street. The large Grade II listed flax mill dates from 1838 when it was built for John Wilkinson by mill architect and engineer, William Fairbairn. It was one of the last flax mills to be built in Leeds in the early part of the nineteenth century. William Fairbairn was also the designer of other great mills, including Armley Mills and Salts Mill at Saltaire. The buildings are currently (2012) owned by Evans and Caddick and there were plans to include them in a large residential complex, a mix of conversion and new build. There is a newly built residential scheme opposite the mill in Goodman Street. Hunslet Mill has 25 bays along the banks of the River Aire and 3 bays in Goodman Street. (Information from The Civic Trust).

Hunslet Mill from Yarn Street (Hunslet)
Colour image18th November 1999. Image shows the Grade II listed, brick-built Hunslet Mill, taken from Yarn Street. It was built in 1838 by William Fairbairn, who also designed Armley Mills and Salts Mill at Saltaire. The mill owner was John Wilkinson who, by 1847, was employing 1500 female flax reelers. It was the last and the largest of the flax-spinning mills to be built in Leeds throughout that period. Demolition of the west range took place in 1986. The mill has 25 bays fronting the River Aire and 3 bays fronting Goodman Street. A new, mixed residential complex, 'h2010' by Miller Homes, has been built (the next phase is in the process of being constructed, 2012) opposite the Goodman Street side of Hunslet Mill, around the Yarn Street area, and it is hoped that the old mill buildings will be renovated as part of the redevelopment of this part of the riverside. Hunslet Mill is currently owned by Evans and Caddick. (2012). (Information from the Civic Trust)

Hunslet Mill, taken from the junction of Yarn Street with Goodman Street (Hunslet)
Colour image18th November 1999. Image shows the Grade II listed, brick-built Hunslet Mill, taken from the junction of Yarn Street, foreground, right, with Goodman Street. They were built in 1838 by William Fairbairn, who also designed Armley Mills and Salts Mill at Saltaire. The first owner of Hunslet Mill was John Wilkinson who by 1847 was employing 1500 female flax reelers. It was the last and the largest of the flax-spinning mills to be built in Leeds throughout that period. Demolition of the west range took place in 1986. On the River Aire side there are 25 bays to the huge mill and 3 bays fronting Goodman Street. The first phases of a new, mixed residential complex ('h2010', by Miller Homes) have been completed on a site opposite the Goodman Street side of Hunslet Mill in the Yarn Street area, so it is hoped that the old, Grade II listed mill will eventually be renovated as part of the redevelopment of the riverside area. The mill buildings are currently owned by Evans and Caddick. (Information from the Civic Trust)
