Hidden In Plain Sight – post 11

Built as a silk mill in the Queen Anne style by James Gosling Smith for William Broster between 1893-94. Waterloo Mill also known as Broster’s Mill is of such a high build quality for its time that it was designed to be fire proof.

The mill was eventually taken over in the later half of the 20th century by Lux Lux Ltd, a lingerie manufacturer from Glossop. It finally closed before the end of the century. In 2003 the owner of the mill was granted permission to convert it into apartments.

The mill was given a Grade II listing on 14 October 1996.
