A hugely significant complex in the industrial story of Skipton, Belle Vue Mills was built in the 1830’s as a Cotton Mill, at one stage employing over 800 workers. In the 1850s the mill was extended, bringing about its evolved identity as an established cotton mill, which grew to hold 385 looms. The industrial complex was known throughout the region as a wonderful, high quality environment to work in producing the famous Sylko Cotton Thread. The community that evolved from here was one of enthusiasm, vibrancy and vigour for life.

The recent restoration of the east wing, known as the Cotton Mill, has provided high quality apartments within this mixed use community, including a selection of exclusive top floor lofts with unique character features. Key aspects from the Dewhurst Heritage and the beauty of the surrounding has been woven carefully into the residential project. Interiors have been carefully animated by award winning illustrator, Tom Duxbury, born and bred in the Yorkshire Dales, who assists in bringing this building into a new chapter whilst retaining the special heritage of the textile industry.
