Listers Mill

     This is part of Listers Mill (also known as Manningham Mills).  At one time the mill had thousands of employees making high quality velvet and silk on its 27 acres of floorspace.  The Mill closed in the 1990s and a campaign then followed to save the buildings. The building in the picture is now an apartment block.  The main feature of the mill is its 255ft tall chimney (not shown) which can be seen from almost anywhere in Bradford.  (I will post a picture of the chimney when I can figure out how to photograph it).
