Hi

I purchased Hollins Mill approximately 16 years ago, it was in very bad condition with only one tenant. After many years of refurbishment including conversion of the rear workshops to 13 luxury apartments, the mill is now a business centre with numerous tenants all local Walsden people, it is always occupied fully with a waiting list for space. When I originally saw the mill I really believed the mill was looking sad, and I thought one day the mill would once again be the hub of activity as it was all those years ago. Unfortunately it took a lot longer than I thought, and very costly.

I am struggling to find any photos internally and externally. If anyone can help please contact me
