Historic woollen mill near Huddersfield sells for £1.5m

A historic 19th-century woollen mill near Huddersfield has been acquired in a seven-figure deal.

Quarmby & Sykes (Holdings) Ltd sold Spinksmire Mill in Meltham for close to its £1.5m asking price.

The site’s new owner is Holmfirth-based SDC Enterprises, a wholly owned trading subsidiary of the charity Society of Dyers and Colourists.

Mike Haigh, from Leeds property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips (DHP), advised the vendors. He said: “The premises comprise the main developed mill section along with yard areas and car parking.

“There is a mill pond which feeds Meltham Dyke running through the site, which will suit the buyer. The remainder of the site is currently open grazing land with further development potential.”

He continued: “The 56,474 sq ft complex comprises a series of stand-alone and interlinking industrial units, which are of both single storey and two storey construction. These have been divided to form a number of mainly self-contained units in multiple occupation.”

The site’s tenants include Northern Dyers, which occupies over 22,000 sq ft, Holmes Heaton Print, David Brown Tractor Club Ltd, Lightowler Yarn Ltd, T S Fabrications and Candleberry Europe Ltd.
