The best mill conversions in Yorkshire

In celebration of National Mills Weekend, we’ve put together a list of the most impressive mill conversions in Yorkshire. These historic mills have been given a new lease of life as vibrant new leisure and entertainment spaces, whilst still retaining and celebrating their past.

Armley Mills, Leeds

Housed in what was once the world’s largest woollen mill, Armley Mills Industrial Museum showcases a wealth of gems located on the River Aire.  Step back in time to learn about the industrial history of Leeds from manufacturing textiles and clothing, to printing, engineering and locomotives.

Canal Mills, Leeds

Given a new lease of life, Canal Mills on Brandon Street has been converted into a vibrant space for art, music and food, hosting many events all year round. They describe themselves as “a constantly evolving space for all mediums of creative output, from exhibitions, pop-up restaurants, live and electronic music events to fashion shows and theatre projects.” This weekend they are hosting ‘Grill at the Mill’ as part of Leeds Indie Food, and have a host of summer parties coming up.

Thwaite Mills, Leeds

One of the last remaining examples of a water-powered mill in Britain, Thwaite Mills is a full restored working mill situated on the River Aire. Nestled on an island, the area is a rich wildlife habitat with areas of water, woodland, scrub and gardens attracting many species. You can take a wander round the museum to find out all about the mills past and present.
