Armley Mills was a woollen mill built in 1805. This was not the first mill to exist on the site. There has been a mill on the site for hundreds of years. The first ever mill dated back to the 1500s and and one time was used for grinding corn.
Tenants lived in part of the Armely Mills in the early 1900s. Working conditions at the mill would have been terrible, as they were everywhere at the time, and working hours would have been very long. Children as young as six would have been set to work in the mill.
The mill closed in 1971 and became a museum of industry in 1982. The museum continues today, and the building is also used as a ghost hunt venue.
The resident spirits at Armley Mills vary from the innocent to the sinister.
Sadly, but as is expected, children are reported to the haunt the building, and then there is a group of dark, hooded figures.
Poltergeist activity is reported and seems to be quite powerful. Doors slam on their own, objects are thrown and machinery is even said to start up on its own!
Children’s crying and laughter is heard, apparitions are seen as well as dark shadows, footsteps and voices are heard, tobacco smoke is smelled. Armley Mills really ticks all the boxes.
