Conditioning House, Bradford


The grade II listed Bradford Conditioning House was built by the local Bradford Corporation, following a special act of Parliament to quality check & control the moisture content of Wool, by means of laboratory examination and certify their true weight and length following inconsistent variations throughout the industry.

The structure was erected over four-storeys and basement around 3 sides of an open court and opened in 1902. The purpose built building was designed by F Wild who died in 1901 and unfortunately never saw his plans come to completion. It was the only such one of its kind in this country.
