 As the development of Horsforth Mill nears completion, we’re taking a quick look at the history of the mill.

 

Every tiny detail of the sensitively restored mill tells another tale from its interesting and varied history, spanning 115 years. But its story doesn’t end here. The stunning development simply turns another page and gives you a chance to start a whole new chapter in style.

Originally built c.1903 for James Mathers, our impressive Edwardian building went on to become the largest textiles mill in the area. Also locally known as New Mill or Mathers Mill, Horsforth Mill produced thousands of metres of high-quality fabrics every year, and built a reputation for an unmatched level of craftsmanship – a tradition we’re carrying on today with our attention to detail as we lovingly bring this old building back to life.

Over the following few decades, the Lister Brothers struggled through the Great Depression, making parachutes during WW2, skills shortages and the challenges all traditional manufacturing faced generally, and in 1962 the decision was taken to wind up the business. Production at Horsforth Mill ceased in April of that year

The building sat empty for many years until Gamestec Leisure, an arcade and amusement company, moved in.

In the summer of 2014 an ambitious project to save this iconic piece of local history, and give the building purpose – and a place in the fabric of the community once more.

 

Details of the development will be released in the near future, make sure to like our Facebook page for updates.
