I think this is a very powerfull image, it says it all about the decline of the industry, the people and the era.

Bancroft mill holds a lot of meories for me I used to know a lot of people who had work there I used to help out in the boiler house stoking the boilers and a few of us used to swim in the dam.
I am glad that they kept the engine room and the boiler house wich I often visit on my reurns to Barlick.

I worked with this man and although he was proud of how many looms he could smash in a day ,he also knew he was taking the great out of great britain !!

I grew up on the outskirts of Leeds and my village, Yeadon, was a milltown like Barlick,and I worked in most of them as a teenager,we dealt with heavy wool rather than cotton. This Photo epitomises the Rape of Great Britain that took places in the early and mid 60's. By 1964 everything that we knew as employment had gone,Steel, Shipbuilding,Textiles,and by 1965 The Local branch Railways had gone too.That was the end of Great Britain!
