CONDITIONING House played a key role in the UK's textile industry but for 30 years stood in a sorry state.

Now, as the T&A has reported, an £18 million restoration by Priestley Homes has transformed it into stylish apartments.

Here we look back at the mighty Cape Street mill complex over the years.

Grade II listed Conditioning House was built in 1902 by Bradford Corporation, through a special Act of Parliament. It was the only Council-run centre in the UK for wool testing and almost 70 per cent of all wool produced in the UK was brought there first.

In its heyday UK-made wool was brought in to Conditioning House to check and control the moisture content.

The mill was a hive of activity until it closed in the late 1980s.
