Owner description: Housed in what was once the world's largest woollen mill, Leeds Industrial Museum houses a wealth of gems located in a beautiful riverside setting. Step back in time to learn about the industrial history of Leeds from manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, which the city was world famous for.

The sat/nav takes you to a shopping precinct and not the museum car park - there is access over a little bridge, so no problem. Old road vehicles, industrial machinery, various other exhibits - cameras - tailoring - printing equipment, diesel and steam trains all housed over three floors and several buildings. Certainly plenty of well presented information with hands on things for the kids. One of which was making a robot, on the day of our visit.

The museum is located away from the city centre, and requires about 10-15 minutes of walking after alighting from the bus. Despite its remote location, the surroundings of the museum offers a good blend of an deindustrialized "park" along the small stream. There is an admission fee which isn't that expensive, and you get to watch a short live demonstration of the mill operation. One good thing about this museum is that although there were not many visitors, the museum is like a well-maintained deindustrialized factory that offers tranquility in the forest (the museum is pretty close to a forest).

This museum is in a large old factory building with several rooms of fascinating exhibits ranging from water wheels, to early film cameras and textile manufacture.
This is a wonderful museum and well worth visiting.

We visited the Mills as part of a GCUK Paranormal Events investigation.

The staff were friendly and handled the whole night very professionally.

We had 45 guests on the night abs had chance to visit all the regular spots and some not so regular ones.

The venue is lovely, the exhibits ate interesting and give a good depth if history of not only this Mill but other similar Mills.

Plenty of activity for Guests once our Mediums had grounded, protected and asked the former occupants to step forward.

Several personal messages for guests from family who had passed.

A very successful evening.

Attending events with GCUK Paranormal Events does give the opportunity to see parts of magnificent venues such as this that ordinarily would be out if bounds.
