Huddersfield is known for its textile mills that were powered by the River Colne in the 18th century and later by steam. The city literally grew from a cottage industry based on the spinning and weaving of wool.
Most of the traditional textile mills, engineers and dye manufacturers have closed or relocated and the town has transformed itself.
Many of the old Victorian mills have now been converted into luxury apartments thereby preserving our heritage of fine buildings. So much more interesting and attractive than modern city high rise blocks.
