Work Begins To Restore Holmfirth Mill


A 19th Century mill in Holmfirth will soon be redeveloped into 11 apartments, after work has begun on the £800,000 restoration project.

Priestley Construction, based in Leeds, has started to transform Green Lane Mill in West Yorkshire after being awarded the job by Green Lane Mill Developments, Yorkshire Post reported.

The six-month initiative will result in the building, situated one mile from Holmfirth town, four miles from the Peak District National Park, and seven miles from Huddersfield, being transformed into a residential development.

Priestly Construction’s Rob Pell said: “Our specialist team is working hard to bring this stunning mill, which has been vacant for two years, back to its former glory.”

The structure, which is being brought into the 21st century by architects Priestley Design, will be for local owner-occupiers, allowing nearby residents to enjoy the historic building.

Gillian Archer, property director at Green Mill Developments, added: “The design and specification of the development will keep the unique characteristics of the building, which sits in the stunning surroundings of Holmfirth.”

Priestley Construction has a lot of experience transforming old buildings into high-end accommodation.

This includes converting Grade-II listed Rivermill Court in Kirkstall, north Leeds, into 27 luxury apartments.

Work on the project began in March 2018, and involved removing all internal structures, and then rebuilding the floors and walls. The £2 million transformation was completed less than a year later in February 2019, with the development being 85 per cent sold before the work came to an end.
