Ossett's Textile Mills When you look at any old pictures of Ossett, especially those pictures taken from the outskirts of the town, an enduring feature is the sheer number of smoking mill chimneys that punctuate the skyline. Every respectable Ossett textile mill had a chimney and usually a mill dam too. So numerous and prominent were these huge brick structures that you might think that there had been a competition among those pioneering Ossett businessmen to see who could build the biggest and best mill chimney. The smoke pollution from the mill chimneys was a constant nuisance and the stonework on Ossett Holy Trinity Church has been permanently stained by soot from the smoke from coal-fired steam boilers that powered Ossett's industry.

Over the course ofwe worked hard to complete the restoration of the riverbank in an environmentally sensitive manner and have carefully installed protections against future flooding. All riverbank reclamation and flood mitigation work was completed with the required regulatory approvals.
Our riverbank restoration work included the removal of debris from the Elbow River and the replacement of vegetation important to the river valley ecosystem. We also completed installing the final phase of a flood protection system that has been under construction since and will protect the southern portion of Stampede Park from overland flow waters associated with a future major flood event.
The flood protection system is located outside of the floodway and is designed to avoid impacting communities upstream or downstream of Stampede Park. We thank all the employees and contractors who worked tenaciously in to rebuild Stampede Park to its current tip-top shape.benjaminpohle.com The Romance of Steel A History of the Steel Industry by Herbert Newton Casson THE BIRTH OF THE BESSEMER PROCESS.
