    Holme Rug Co. Rein’s Mill, Huddersfield. October 2013.

    A small, elderly mill building on the outskirts of Huddersfield. Formerly home to the Holme Rug Co. In really good nick, with a few charming details. 

Very little remains regarding the company itself within the building apart from a certificate of Incorporation in 1960 establishing itself as a limited Company. Information of the companies activities are also limited, presumably they wove and / or sold rugs, there are some bits and pieces of really old looms in the loft space but that’s about it. Evidence of an owl in residence is compounded by the large amount of pellets to be found “Look, white dog poo…â€￾

    It seems that the company only operated for 15 years until it was wound up.



    The mid and lower floors seem to have served varying uses over time, the ground floor holding a forklift truck and a stock of bus or lorry tyres. In 2010 a planning application was made for a change of use and conversion into an MOT garage, which was approved but seemingly not acted upon. Visited with Clough, Geo & Fudge.

    A few photos:
