AN HISTORIC former textile mill, famous for it’s starring roles in TV and film, is up for sale.
The grade two-listed Dalton Mills, currently yields an annual rental income of almost £120,000, is going under the hammer with King Sturge later this month.
The partially restored 19th century mill in Keighley town centre is one of the key sites in the Airedale Masterplan, the regeneration blueprint for the Airedale region.
The mill was the setting for the BBC adaptation of North and South, and was also the set for BBC 1 show Sunday Life.
It also recently featured as a backdrop for Bedlam, an upcoming drama series featuring Will Young.
The Clock Tower and Riverside parts of the building have been converted into a business park over the last few years by the mill’s developer Magna Holdings, housing a wide range of tenants from wind turbine designers to screen and digital printers.
The landmark clock has also been restored to its former working glory.
The mill will be auctioned in two separate lots in London on December 15.
