A community organisation hoping to bring a dilapidated historic building in Kirkstall back into use has produced a virtual tour to highlight its poor condition.

Members of the Kirkstall Valley Development Trust are hoping to take Grade II Listed Abbey Mills, which dates back to the 19th century, into community ownership.

KVDT’s Chris Hill said:

“Go to the symbol in the bottom left hand corner then click on the part of the mill you want to walk around. You’ll need to play around. Warning – it’s a massive file and you might struggle with a mobile phone.”

KVDT are hoping to create a community hub and heritage centre alongside social housing.  A deal with Leeds City Council has been delayed because of a disagreement whether a new access road into the mill is needed.
