The Development

Spinning Mill is a striking Grade II former textile mill located on the banks of the Rochdale Canal, to the north east of Manchester city centre.

Designed by prominent Bolton architect George Woodhouse, it’s bold six-storey red-brick façade and towering chimney has dominated the local skyline for over one and a half centuries. Although textile production ceased in the 1960’s, the mill continues to play an important role within the community. At street level are offices for the NHS, whilst on the upper floors luxurious one- and two-bedroom apartments have been created for professionals keen to benefit from easy access to the city centre for work and pleasure.

From up here, the Mill’s panoramic views across the city and surrounding suburbs can be fully appreciated. It’s an exciting landscape and one that continues to evolve as significant public and private investment funds the formation of new communities, amenities, attractions and opportunity.

The industrial heritage of the mill is celebrated through the careful retention of its most interesting and unique architectural features. This includes the remains of a fascinating crane, which is suspended between the two Mill blocks and was used to hoist cargo from barges arriving on the canal.  

One of the Mill’s most unique features is its towering chimney. Wrapping around this iconic centrepiece is the building’s brick and stone circular stairwell, which has also been retained and restored for resident’s use. Wherever possible, authentic architectural features have been preserved within the apartments with new additions styled to complement the industrial theme, such as exposed electrical features.
