Broadstone Mill is steeped in history dating back to 1904 when it was first officially registered as the Broadstone Spinning Company.
In its heyday it was the largest and most modern mill in Europe and since then it has served the Reddish community for many generations, employing millions of people in the last century. The longstanding mill has seen a number of structural changes since its inception and has been subjected to a couple of closures but it has stood the test of time and today we are very proud of its impressive heritage.
After a period of extensive refurbishment in 2001, Broadstone Mill was given a new lease of life and it re-opened its doors as the rejuvenated building we see today. The surrounding area where Broadstone Mill is situated was also regenerated and re-named as Houldsworth Village. This is now a thriving business community within the heart of Reddish, near Stockport and in 2008 the overall redevelopment project was named winner in the ‘Boosting Productivity’ category at the Regeneration and Renewal Awards.
Future plans for Broadstone mill include the reconstruction of the south building, as well as renovation work on the canal basin to create a marina at the front of the mill.
