Derwent Place, off Bath Road (Holbeck) (2 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. On the right is part of the original building while on the left is the Temple Works extension. The original six-storey mill dates back to 1791-92 when John Marshall established his flax-spinning business here, drawing 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. In the 1840s the Egyptian-style Temple Works were added, believed to house the largest single room in the world at the time. Together the two mills employed over 2,000 workers, using 7,000 steam-powered spindles. The original mill, 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.
