Not so dark and Satanic now

By Drighlynne
Dean Clough in Halifax is a complex of old Victorian Mills built in the 1840's to 1860's for the Crossley Family in Halifax. It is now used as art galleries, a hotel, various business premises, restaurants, offices and a theatre. Up to 50 years ago hundreds of people worked there, Dean Clough was the home of the world famous Crossley Carpets. The blacked mills were cleaned to remove the years of black sooty coating they had received and now show off what a great set of buildings the mill was when it was first built.
Not sure which image was going to lead with, because I liked the face on of part of the mill, but put that as a variation.

Thank you to everyone for your lovely awards and comments on yesterday's upload and special thanks to Colleen (Colleen A), Phil (PhilT2), and Laslo Sabo (Laslo) for their great UA's.

Hope more of these fine buildings are similarly restored.
Can't see them being built to this standard in modern times.
Lovely shots, Lynne.

Great architecture, Lynne. Rather like Salts Mill, at Saltaire near Shipley - at least they've done something with them rather than let them fall in disrepair Smile
