My late father [Amos Allan Denison] spoke of his father Benjamin Kitson Denison as being in an owner partnership of Manor Mill, Yeadon in the late 1800's. Is anyone able to shed any light on this? Thank you

There was a Woolen Mill near the bottom of Henshaw Lane called Denisons, and I believe that it was run by four brothers, but they had to sell out or close ? owing to family problems. Part of the building still exists, it is now a builders premises.
