Carleton Mill[edit]

Carleton Mill

Carleton Mill dates back to 1861[citation needed] when it was originally built for spinning cotton; the mill later housed a mail-order business throughout the 1930s. During the second world war the Rover company worked at the building to produce aircraft parts.

Shortly after, the mill returned to its original use as a textile factory and later produced carpets, eventually closing down in November 1999. It was recently converted into luxury apartments by Novo Homes Ltd with 51 apartments in the mill itself and 26 houses constructed within the grounds.
