It’s an unlikely architectural connection,
But a new book about the influence of ancient Egypt on British architecture over the past two centuries has revealed a Leeds link.
Among the cultural gems profiled is Temple Mill, also known as Marshall’s Mill, in Marshall Street, Holbeck.
The mill joins another West Yorkshire site, Bradford’s Undercliffe cemetery, in Egypt in England, a new book from English Heritage.
The book by Egyptologist Chris Elliott explores more than 50 public monuments in Britain, from cinemas and supermarkets to factories and mausoleums, revealing an on-going love affair between Britain and the land of the pharaohs.
