Peak condition

For those with big ideas and money to spare, these industrial buildings in the Peak District are ripe for conversion to residential use

What is it?

Litton Mill: a former mill premises dating from around 1780, rebuilt during the nineteenth century, and in operation as a working textile mill until the 1960s.

Where is it?

In a secluded valley alongside the River Wye in the heart of the Peak District. Six miles from Buxton, nine miles from Bakewell, 20 miles from Sheffield and 27 miles from Manchester.

Anything else?

As well as the mill itself, there is a former warehouse and a former canteen, along with three terraced cottages, two of which are tenanted on a protected tenancy basis.

Does it come with any land?

There is plenty of land which could be used as gardens for any residential development. The site also extends beyond the mill buildings into a part of the Watercum-Jolly dale, an unspoilt area suitable for shared amenity space.

How much will it cost me?

The agent will say only that 'offers are invited'.

What can I do with it?

Various planning consents have been granted in the past, including a 1984 application to covert the mill buildings into 24 apartments and eight houses.The agents will consider offers which are subject to planning consent.

How do I find out more?

To view the property call the agent, FPD Savills, on 0115 934 8020. For planning enquiries call the Peak District National Park Authority on 01629 816200.
