Hembrigg Mill, boiler explosion (Morley)
4th July 1863. A lithograph drawing from the Leeds Intelligencer (forerunner of the Yorkshire Post) of Saturday 4th July 1863 of the results of the terrible boiler explosion at Hembrigg Mill that took place a week before on June 27th. In it 20 people were killed or wounded. This view was drawn from the railway bridge over Bridge Street, looking down Mill Lane to the Hembrigg towards the end of the building where the rotary wheel used to be fixed to the side. There are long descriptions in the newspaper reports of the time as the mill was only two years old when the accident occurred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
