The Ebor mill site

There is a welter of innuendo and accusation flying around about the Ebor Mill fire, some of it, on You Tube, is actionable, but that's what you get on You Tube.
Setting all that aside let's see some support for the future of the site now we have lost a historic building. Perhaps the cash heavy National Lottery, and others, might like to dig deep to give us a heritage site for Haworth celebrating the mill industry and more, things which were special to our heritage.
If someone does step in and try and build there let permission include the condition that all the properties should be in the style of mill cottages or weavers' cottages, with an appropriate commemorative monument to what used to be there.

Ebor Mill fire

The largest fire seen in Haworth for years has destroyed Ebor Mill. See HERE
This morning the entire village was covered in ash.
More pictures on the Haworth Village News site HERE
And it has made You Tube HERE along with some very dodgy comments about a certain property company which I won't name!

Yorkshire Day

I was hoping to post something of substance about Haworth's contribution to Yorkshire Day.
Unfortunately, apart from a scattering of stalls from traders, all I saw was a dingy tea towel, with a white rose on it, fluttering from an upstairs window.
One laminated A4 sign at the bottom of Main Street announced the "Haworth Village Association" were doing things for the day, not much it has to be said, and the advance publicity was non-existent.
Come on people, this is your village, and life exists beyond the Main Street traders. Let's show them what the residents can do. It is OUR village!
