Temple Mill, Marshall Street, Holbeck - Leeds

One of the great monuments of the Industrial Revolution, built for James Garth Marshall. Designed by James Coombe and built between 1836 and 40, Joseph Bonomi advised on the design of the Egyptian facade. It fronts a brick-vaulted spinning mill with circular roof lights. Failure of a tie bar has caused collapse of two front bays. Other bays are vulnerable to similar failure. The Counting House is in a fair condition. Proposals for structural repair and reuse of the buildings are in development, leading to potential use by the British Library.
