Yesterday evening, Jen pointed out there was a lot more traffic on the lane than usual. It continued throughout the night. We assumed the main road down the valley must have been closed overnight as part of the flood-relief work in Mytholmroyd. Sadly, it turned out to be something far more dramatic: local landmark Walkley’s Mill had caught fire. It was damaged beyond repair, and its demolition began today.
