Haunted Armley Mills, Leeds

The Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills
Images from an investigation at Armley Mills
Sunday 13th December 2015
Armley Mills is now home to the Leeds Industrial Museum
The Mills date back to the sixteenth Century
A fire destroyed the original building
after it was bought by Benjamin Gott (1762-1840)
It was re-built in 1805
and was the world's largest woollen mill.
The Mills are Grade II listed
and it closed in 1969
It opened as a museum in 1982
The dark corridors are said to be haunted
Ghosts of children have been seen and heard
The Mills are situated on a bank of the River Aire
and very near to the Leeds and Liverpool canal
Most Haunted's Yvette Fielding, Karl Beattie
Stuart Torevell, Glen Hunt
and their team recently investigated there
The machine rooms were eerily quiet
and nobody else was about
There was a feeling of sadness
as many lives would have been lost in the past
Now silence
where the deafening noise of machines
once affected everyone who worked there
The ghosts were not forthcoming
but their silent presence was undeniable!
