    Cellars Clough Mills, Marsden - March 2012

    Visited with fishbrain and Hiddenshadow


    The woollen mill was owned by Samuel Firth of Gatehead in Marsden, and opened in 1888. He also owned Holme Mill. By the 60s, it was owned and run by Fisher, Firth & Co. which became Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd, managed by another Firth son, in 1981. The company has now been dissolved.

    Situated just off the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the mill’s pond is now a popular fishing spot. Planning permission was granted for the conversion of the mills and former offices to 101 dwelling units, 9 live/work units, a resident’s gym, pool, shop, meeting room, bike store, car park and improvements to the access road.

    Previous planning applications have been unsuccessful as bats were found to be residing in the mill. The bats weren’t forcibly removed, so the hope was that they would eventually choose the ‘improved accommodation’ for themselves.

    Apologies for all the fisheye, but I might have to give it back soon... hence the overkill!

    Fishbrain and I used to play in band together here. We used the former offices as our rehearsal space between 2001 and 2005ish...
    some 'evidence' of our time here still survives. In truth, this was our main reason for returning.

    Of course, there's nothing left to see here really, but given our personal history with the place, it was very enjoyable to be back... I just wish we could've plugged in and rocked out again.
