Reported Ghosts

Armley Mills is renowned for being haunted! There have been many reports of unexplained happenings and spooky sightings by visitors and guests alike; and it’s no wonder this building has a well-known haunted reputation with it’s long and terrible past. Ghost hunts are known to be intense at Armley Mills!

Sightings of an old Victorian Gentleman have been spotted and the smell of burning and tobacco smoking coming from older parts of the building. Doors slamming shut and heavy footsteps heard approaching when no one is around. There have also been cries of children heard as well as tugging on peoples clothing as though a child is trying to attract their attention. Ghostly shadows and moving objects have also been witnessed.

Venue History

The earliest record of Armley Mills dates from the middle of the sixteenth century when local clothier Richard Booth leased ‘Armley Millnes’ from Henry Saville. The mills expanded and by 1788 were equipped with five waterwheels driving eighteen fulling stocks. Fulling was a necessary but dirty process where woven wool is felted. The bundles of cloth are hit repeatedly by large hammers, the fulling stocks, while soaked in water, urine and a clay known as Fuller’s earth. The urine which is a source of ammonia was collected from neighbouring houses, who specially saved it for the purpose.

The mills were sold in 1788, ten years after the new canal opened. It was bought by Colonel Thomas Lloyd who expanded it to be the world’s largest woollen mill

Benjamin Gott purchased the mill in 1804/1805 but later burnt down. The early mills were fire hazards. Gott rebuilt the mill using fireproof principles. The mill structure survives and it is this structure that has achieved a grade II* listing. Gott was the owner of several woollen mills. He died in 1840 and was succeeded by his sons John Gott and William Gott. They introduced a steam engine to supplement the water wheels in 1850 but it was in the 1860s that the waterwheels were phased out.

By 1907 part of the mill had been let out to tenants in a room and power agreement. The woollen clothing manufacturers Bentley and Tempest took over the mill. The mill closed in 1971, a victim to the changing technology, loss of market and the prevailing economic conditions. It was sold to Leeds City Council who re-opened it as a museum of industry in 1982.

Jason Young

It’s not often that one gets a chance to take part in a real ghost hunting experience, and when that opportunity arose to explore the Haunted Armley Mills in Leeds I jumped at it! From the moment I stepped foot in the eerie halls of the abandoned mills, I knew I was in for something extraordinary. The musty scent of age filled my nostrils as we ventured forth, guided by the knowledgeable Haunted Houses team. We had access to many different tools and instruments, like EMF detectors, tape recorders and flashlights, all to be used to capture any sort of paranormal activity we might come across. As the night went on, things began to get even more interesting. Doors creaked, steps sounded on the hard floor, and every now and then, what sounded like disembodied voices echoed through the hallways. We had to stay calm and be brave, but I could feel the excitement and tension radiating from our group. At one point, the darkness around us grew, until it seemed like all light was blocked out from the halls and passageways of the mill. I felt like I was frozen in time, stuck in a loop until the oppressive energy around us began to slowly dissipate. It was truly a remarkable experience. In the end, we all emerged feeling as though we had gone on a thrilling journey into the unknown. The Haunted Armley Mills was a fascinating and enlightening experience, and I look forward to being able to share the story of our adventure with everyone!
