1: This view is from Queensway, demolition of the dyeworks is underway. The gable ends of property on Church Lane can be seen.

2: On the right is a building which houses several companies including a picture framers.
The remains of Albion Dyeworks with chimney still standing are in the centre of the view, the junction of Queensway with Town Street is next right.
On Queensway, the last house in view on the right is a bungalow called "Southlands".

4: Looking from Queensway, the dyeworks chimney is being pulled down. Workmen are suspended in a cage from a crane jib and reducing the chimney manually.
The tower of St Oswalds Church peeps over the rubble on the left.

One man has been elevated in the cradle of a machine often called a "cherry picker".

9: This house was home to the second generation of the Busfield family who owned the dyeworks, it was concealed by other buildings in the works yard.The family decided to relocate to other homes and the house was used as offices.Demolition of the surrounding buildings has given us this view.
