Having been a derelict building for such a long time, we are delighted to have been retained as agents, and have been jointly instructed to act on behalf of Pearl2 with the letting of one of the region’s most historic sites, Brierfield Mills following the impending and extensive redevelopment of the site.
The Grade II listed building on the side of the Leeds and Liverpool canal was originally built in 1834 and in its heyday housed 87,000 spindles and 2,000 looms and now all 380,000 square foot of this landmark building covering a 7 acre site is set to be transformed in what is being described as a ‘destination development’.
Pendle’s regeneration company, Pearl2; a joint venture between Barnfield Investment Properties and Pendle Council are leading the regeneration of the mill and further details of the plans are to be unveiled in due course. With the opportunity to create a mix-use scheme that incorporates a variety of uses including retail and leisure, this iconic building has a lot of exciting potential and will undoubtedly become Pendle’s flagship economic regeneration project which retains and preserves the Grade II characteristics.
Tim Webber, Chairman of Pearl2 and Managing Director of Barnfield Investment Properties said: “As a Pendle company, we are passionate about the Brierfield Mill complex. It has fantastic potential. Not only does it mean we have an opportunity to preserve it for future generations to come but we will be creating jobs and hopefully a landmark for the region.”
