Historic Textile Mills of Greater Manchester
Survey Review and Heritage Audit
By University of Salford’s Greater Manchester Archaeological Advisory Service
Historic England commissioned the University of Salford to survey Greater Manchester's historic textile mills. The report addresses survival numbers, occupancy levels and condition. It reveals that 45% of historic mills in Greater Manchester have been demolished in the last 30 years. It also highlights their potential, with over a million square metres of vacant space available to accommodate the homes and businesses of the future.
