Crosland Mills, South Crosland

There's not much to see here at the moment but we hope to add more details about this topic at a later date :-)

Crosland Mills is a former woollen mill situated on the South Crosland side of Hall Dike (which later becomes Mag Brook) and was close to the former Healey House Station on the Meltham Branch Line.

The mill was supplied by water from a mill race, which diverted part of the flow of Hall Dike beyond Healey House.


By 1906, the mill was marked on the Ordnance Survey map as "disused", but had reopened as a worsted mill by the 1930s. Photographs from this period show the mill was four storeys tall.

By the mid-1960s, the mill had been largely replaced by the current two-storey factory, and it is more commonly known locally as Crosland Factory.

Separate depot and industrial warehouse buildings were later built opposite the former mill by the distribution company The Pink Link, becoming known as Crosland Road Industrial Estate. These buildings were demolished in 2015 as part of an approved plan to construct a housing estate of 27 properties on the land.[1][2]
