Dalton Mills is a collection of five separate Grade II listed buildings set around a courtyard and built in the late 1860’s. What used to be a woollen mill now houses 17 separate local businesses in 53,000 sq ft of buildings. There are a further 157,000 sq ft which are currently vacant and ready for conversion. Dalton Mills was used in the filming of the BBC’s North and South drama series based on Elisabeth Gaskell’s love story written in the 1850’s.
Simon Bailey, King Sturge Auctioneer comments: “As well as being an iconic historical building, Dalton Mills is an investment opportunity for property entrepreneurs. It provides a good income, it is exempt of empty rates and the space can be adapted to many uses; it could even be converted to residential dwellings.”
