This place sits on the opposite of the conditioining house which I visited a month or so ago. It's part demolished but the remainder is grade II listed and was originally built in 1871. It's been vacant since 2001 when British Mohair Supplies Ltd moved out (that's a wool made from goats hair!). It's meant to be converted into a mixed use commercial/residential complex as part of a 35m revamp but can't see that happening anytime! Cheers Stealth for laying on a explore within very short notice :D

British Mohair Holdings Ltd Midland Mills, BRADFORD, BD1 4RP

Demolition work has been completed on the disused Bradford textile mill which was once home to the British Mohair Holdings Company. Now plans for the next phase of conversion have been devised by Shipley architects, Beckwith Design Associates and submitted to Bradford council for approval.

Midland Mills, which has been vacant since 2001, is a two acre site with 3 Grade II Listed Buildings which date back to the nineteenth century. Designed by architects, Andrews and Pepper and built in the 1871, the redevelopment of the mills and the construction of two new residential projects, would form part of the ambitious Bradford Canal project. The blue prints show how the likely route of the Shipley to Bradford canal scheme will run through the site, along with the inclusion of walkways and cyclepaths.
