The Haunted Mill

About this Event

Ghost hunts at Armley Mills in Leeds are pretty intense; Armley Mills has a well-known reputation for unexplained happenings and also being known as highly haunted; many guests have caught a glimpse of a small girl out the corner of their eye, then in a flash, she has disappeared, heavy metal doors have been heard slamming, heavy footsteps are heard to approach you when nobody is physically walking, Many guests have witnessed a dark shadow of what appears to be a gentleman dressed in old Victorian clothing. In the older parts of the mill, many people claim to smell burning and old tobacco smoke. Disembodied voices are heard coming from closed-off engine rooms, along with the sound of old-fashioned police whistles. Many guests refuse to go to toilets in the mill alone, Will you encounter the gentleman known to be around the stairs? This location is an absolute must for anyone who dares! Join us as we invite you to this fascinating location after dark! Become a real ghost hunter and be part of this Intense ghost hunt.


History Of Armley Mills


The earliest record of Armley Mills dated from the middle of the sixteenth century when local clothier Richard Booth leased 'Armley Mills' from Henry Savile. A document of 1707 describes them as fulling mills. One contained two wheels and four fulling stocks, while another was used to grind corn mill and two fulling stocks. The mills expanded and by 1788 were equipped with five waterwheels driving eighteen fulling stocks. Fulling was a necessary but dirty process where woven wool is felted. The bundles of cloth are hit repeatedly by large hammers, the fulling stocks, while soaked in water, urine and clay known as Fuller's earth. The urine, which is a source of ammonia, was collected from neighbouring houses, which specially saved it.


The mills were sold in 1788, ten years after the new canal opened. It was bought by Colonel Thomas Lloyd, a Leeds cloth merchant who expanded it to be the world's largest woollen mill; he leased the running of the mills to Israel and John Burrows; they built the semi-detached house for themselves on the far bank of the canal.


From 1804 to 1805, the mills were sold to Benjamin Gott- but burnt down. The early mills were fire hazards, the fibres in the air igniting and setting fire to the flammable structure. Gott rebuilt the mill using fireproof principles: the structure survives and has achieved a grade II listing. Gott was the owner of several woollen mills. He died in 1840 and was succeeded by his sons John Gott and William Gott. They introduced a steam engine to supplement the water wheels in 1850, but in the 1860s, the water wheels were phased out.


By 1907 part of the mill had been let out to tenants in a room and power agreement. The woollen clothing manufacturers Bentley and Tempest took over the mill. The mill closed in 1971, a victim to the changing technology, loss of market and the prevailing economic conditions. It was sold to Leeds City Council, who reopened it as an industry museum in 1982.
