Steam-powered worsted mill, established 1871 by loom manufacturer. Designed by Lockwood and Mawson of Bradford as integrated mill with combing shed, mill, weaving shed and warehouse, but slump in fortunes of traditional Bradford product (cotton-warp worsteds) caused change to spinning mill. Weaving shed never built, mill left as unfinished shell, warehouse converted to act as spinning mill. Original mill building was completed only in 1903, to designs by Moore and Crabtree, Keighley.

I loved to stay in Legrams; it is a perfect place to live in Bradford; everything is very comfortable, and everything is spotless. I think that an excellent place to live requires enough space in Bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, and it is precisely what Legrams mill provides. Besides, it is very close to the university, and the owners and workers treat the tenants amicably and politely. They are very attentive to anything you need anytime, and they make you feel at home.
