West Riding Mill Regeneration Plans

Published : February 16, 2016

Yorkshire Textiles welcomes Historic England’s plans to help us by bringing more empty textile mills back into use across West Yorkshire.

These wonderful buildings have been shown to be very versatile. Many successful existing projects in the region show that they can be used not only to sustain modern textile related companies and activities, but also for a wide variety of other uses, from high tech and light engineering companies to the arts, sports and housing.
