Canal Road, Armley, off A65, in Leeds.
A 19th century corn, spinning weaving and fulling mill, which goes back to
the early 16th century, having been rebuilt twice. At one time it had five
waterwheels and eighteen fulling stocks. The mill worked until 1969, and was
allegedly the largest woollen mill in the world. Now a museum of
industrial Leeds, which tells the history of
manufacturing in Leeds, including textiles, clothing, printing and engineering.
The mill is complete with a set of working mules among many other items..
