Derelict Brighouse

Just off the M62, and on the River Calder, is Brighouse - the "h" is silent. The town has clearly seen better days. Curiously, the public mortuary (closed and derelict) is neighbour to the public baths and swimming pool (closed and derelict). Some of the old mills alongside the Calder and Hebble Navigation, which runs through the town, have been converted into apartments, but these look out on wasteland and more dereliction.
