This derelict Grade II listed former mill is set across 6 floors and the grounds are bordered by significant woodland. Halifax town centre is south of the development, less than one mile from the site.
The historic Mill is notable as the oldest and largest surviving example of a multi-storey, steam-powered, iron-framed textile mill.
This is a sought after and well respected residential area close to shops, local schooling and within ten minutes walk to the town centre.

Also nearby are the popular Dean Clough development with many businesses, shops, and restaurants, and the Broad Street Plaza complex complete with cinema and other entertainment and food outlets.
