Last fragments of the canalside in Mirfield

I was saddened to see the last industrial building on Station Road in Mirfield put up for demolition, as this street faces the canal, and is cobbled – it truly is one of the last authentically Victorian environments left in the town.

It is quite clear to me that any residential or even commerical redevelopment of this site would benefit immensely from retaining this frontage. ¬†Finding tenants has become about branding and the creation of a location. Victorian stock adjacent to canals (and cobbles to boot), flies off the real estate shelves. Don’t demolish this last vestige of industrial Mirfield, its bloody beautiful.
