Temple Mill, Leeds, West Yorkshire

Temple Mill was built as a Flax spinning mill in 1838-43 by Ignatious Bonomi the younger of Durham, for John Marshall and Company. The building represents the height of the Marshall Mills flax business in Leeds and had acquired a legendary reputation within a few years of its construction. The Egyptian design has been attributed to the Egyptologist Joseph Bonomi, the architect's brother, Egypt having an important flax industry in the ancient world.
