APARTMENTS in a redeveloped Victorian mill on the banks of the River Wharfe are about to go on to the rental market.

The 200-year-old Greenholme Mills on the outskirts of Burley-in-Wharfedale has been redeveloped by MMR Construction and transformed into a combination of luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

Parkes & Co letting agents of Otley have been appointed to market the apartments on the rental market as the initial phase of the redevelopment nears its completion.

According to Parkes & Co, the development “will offer the highest level of luxury living, benefitting from its stunning location on the edge of Burley-in-Wharfedale village from where there are beautiful sweeping views across the river towards open countryside and the moors beyond.”

The developer has tried to retain as many original features as possible including the underground Goyt which will form an impressive underground gymnasium for private use of the residence. An existing building to the North of the site, affectionately named the ‘Fison’ Building will form the on-site café which will benefit from a large, elevated terrace area overlooking the river, along with small workshop spaces.

In 1790, Jonas Whitaker & Company developed the original Greenholme Mill alongside the River Wharfe, a little to the north of the existing range of buildings. The present substantial mill buildings, Whitaker and Forster, were constructed around 1810, for the purposes of cotton spinning and at the time Greenholme was considered to be one of the largest water powered mills in the United Kingdom.

The passing decades saw many companies operate from the site, with the last substantial occupier, William Fisons & Company, converting the mills to worsted spinning and weaving in around 1850. Fisons’ continued in occupation until 1968 when, following the decline of much of the West Riding’s worsted trade, the business was wound down and the assets sold.
