The retail delights of both Leeds and Bradford city centres are just a short car, bus or train ride away.
History - From the 16th century onwards, many of Baildon’s inhabitants turned to cloth and textile manufacturing as a means of making a living. This was initially a cottage based industry, with many people choosing to set up workshops within their own homes. By the late 18th century, textile manufacturing had become a major industry in the village and the advent of the Industrial Revolution meant that manufacturing soon moved to much larger, industrialized mills.
In order to meet demand, the early 19th century saw a number of large textile mills built in Baildon, including Baildon Mill. Originally named Providence Mill, the building was constructed around 1824 by F.W Holmes, a local industrialist who saw the potential of the textile manufacturing industry at that time.
The mill went through periods of economic success and failure, changing hands several times before the end of the 19th century. The mill was extended around the middle of the 19th century and then again towards the end of the 20th century. However, the mill still retains much of its original form and buildings, including the millpond located on the north side of the complex. This millpond will form part of a community hub for the redevelopment of the mills, with a beautiful communal garden and pond available for residents to enjoy.
The mill buildings are an important local landmark and add much to the character of the village. The homes at Baildon Mills will be carefully designed to ensure that the historical appeal of the mill building is maintained, to ensure that this scheme remains an important piece of local architecture for many years to come.
From the roundabout in the centre of Baildon proceed up Northgate for a short distance where the development can be found on the left hand side identified by our for sale board.
