Bridgehouse Mills to be rejuvenated

Watson Batty Architects have submitted a planning application for an exciting mixed used regeneration scheme on the site of Bridgehouse Mills in Haworth, on behalf of Skipton Properties.

The existing listed mill will be converted and extended to accommodate 46 high quality ‘Retirement Living’ apartments.  We are also proposing 77 new build family houses in this fantastic valley setting.

The development also embraces the existing employment uses on the site with new premises being proposed for Wyedean Weaving, Airedale Springs and Bronte Private Hire.

The proposal sits well within its context adjacent to Haworth village, Bridgehouse Beck and the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, it also guarantees a new long term future for the existing mill.

The new Bridgehouse Beck Park located at the southern end of the site not only provides public amenity space and recreational facilities but also gives betterment to the potential flood risk in the centre of Haworth.

Living Sector Director at Watson Batty Architects, Richard Merrills said

“This is without doubt the boldest most adventurous regeneration scheme we have worked on for Skipton Properties.  The mixture of building uses coupled with challenging site topography and context has actually inspired the whole team into achieving this deliverable new settlement.”
