Leeds began life as a small market town, which gradually became an important centre for the manufacture and marketing of wool and flax, weaving, tailoring and commerce. This heritage includes The White Cloth Hall in Kirkgate, which opened in 1711 as the first covered market for the sale of undyed cloth by merchants from the surrounding areas. To the south of the city centre, the area around the Hol-beck, Globe Road and Water Lane, housed various mills and ancillary textile businesses, including imposing Marshall’s Mill. Grade I listed Temple Works sits at the heart of this area.
