Batley Reporter 29th December 1888 Terrific Mill Fire at Birstal

One of the most frightful and destructive fires that has occured in Birstal district for a long time took place at a late hour on Thursday night, by which Brookroyd Mill near Birstal was totally destroyed, only portions of the outer walls being left standing. The mill occupied a site close to the road leading from Bradford Road to Brownhill, one end abutting on Bradford Road, ad the other on the branch line of the London and North Western Railway Company. It was four storeys high, and built nearly twenty years ago by Messrs. Parr and Ramsden, Woollen Manfacturers, on the site of a former structure which had for some time been in ruins. It was partly occupied by Mr. Joe Ramsden, the owner, and part of it was let to others. The top storey was in the occupation of Messrs. H. and F. Marriott, and it was in this room that the fire broke out abut 8 o'clock. An alarm was given, and the Liverpool and London and Globe fire brigade from Birstal was soon on the spot, and the Batley borough brigade, and also the Wensleydale Mills and Queen Street Mills hosepipes. The fire, however, got a firm hold of the building and the roof fell in with a crash. Soon the fire broke through into the second room, and the flames raged with terrific fury, and cast a red glare on the sky which could be seen for several miles around. In about and hour and a half the entire structure was gutted, and large portions of the outer walls fell. The efforts of the firemen were, however, directed to saving some loom sheds, and the adjoinng warehouse, steam tentering house and other buildings. These were saved from the fire, but damaged considerably by the falling of the walls. Thousands of spectators assembled in the roads and fields, and many even on the railway line, to witness the conflagration. The damage is estimated at about £14,000. Mr. Ramsden is insured, the buildings and contents on the London and Liverpool and Globe, the Lancashire, the Royal, and the Queen insurance offices, and Messrs. Marriott's stock was insured in the National Assurance Company of Ireland. The gable end of the mill fell over Bradford Road and cut off the tramway communication to Gomersall. It was 2 o'clock ysterday morning before the line was cleared and the London and Liverpool and Globe brigade was left in charge until long after that time. Two assistants of the above brigade were injured, one having his hip dislocated and the other his arm crushed. The fire happened at a most unfortunate time for the two firms, both of whom had been particularly busy for some time past. A large number of people are thrown out of employment by the catastrophe.
