Colour image2006. View of the old, single storey works canteen located on the east side of Netherfield Road. It belonged to the woollen mill of Abraham Moon & Sons Ltd., located on the west side of Netherfield Road. The firm was first established in 1837 and a three storey mill was erected in Netherfield Road in 1868. It was destroyed by fire in 1902 and replaced by a single storey building. The works canteen, seen here, was demolished recently to make way for Branwell Park, a new housing development by Redrow Homes. Image courtesy of Anne North & Guiseley Methodist Church.

Crompton Parkinson Factory, Netherfield Road (Guiseley) (1 comment)
Colour image2004. Image shows the Crompton Parkinson factory in Netherfield Road, not long before it was demolished. It was built here in the 1930s and manufactured lamps and electric motors. Crompton & co. was founded by Rookes Evelyn Bell Crompton (1845-1940) in 1878 and he was at the forefront of the development of electric lighting and electrical systems. In the 1920s the company merged with rival F. Parkinson Ltd. to form Crompton Parkinson. Frank Parkinson was Guiseley born (1887-1946) and was educated at Leeds University. He continued to run Crompton Parkinson's after Crompton retired. Frank Parkinson died in 1946 but during his life-time, and as a result of the trust funds set up after his death, many people and institutions have benefited. The Crompton Parkinson factory closed in 2002 and a new housing estate has been built on the site. Image courtesy of Anne North & Guiseley Methodist Church.

The Crompton Parkinson site is now occupied by Edison Fields, an estate of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.
