Mill de­vel­oper aims to res­cue her­itage

Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

AWARD-WIN­NING Holmfirth de­vel­oper Con­roy Brook hopes to con­vert a for­mer tex­tile mill in New Mill vil­lage, near Holmfirth.

The com­pany has put for­ward pro­pos­als to trans­form Sude Hill Mill into 16 apart­ments de­signed by Hud­der­s­field ar­chi­tects Acu­men.

Con­roy Brook project man­ager, An­drew Bat­tye, said: “This de­vel­op­ment aims to help pre­serve the mill’s her­itage in a way that is ben­e­fi­cial to the com­mu­nity, rather then leave it to ei­ther be de­mol­ished, or be­come a va­cant and derelict build­ing.

“We in­tend to re­tain many of the ex­ist­ing el­e­ments, re­mov­ing only the ex­ten­sion added in 1998 to ac­com­mo­date a con­tem­po­rary link be­tween the two orig­i­nal build­ings erected in 1848.”
