Yorkshire Chemicals, Leeds

Demolition of the former Yorkshire Chemicals plant in the Hunslet area of Leeds is almost complete.  This photograph, taken in mid-May, shows the final remains of the factory, between Cudbear Street and Black Bull Street, adjacent to Hunslet Lane.

Yorkshire Chemicals - Leeds - Demolition

The company was a manufacturer of dyes for the textiles industry but went into liquidation in January 2006.  Yorkshire Chemicals had a second, much larger site, on Kirkstall Road, Leeds which is also to be demolished.  <BIPS © 2008>
