Newsome Mills sits at the heart of Newsome – both geographically and historically. The mill was founded by John Taylor in 1827 and was a working woollen textile mill right up until 1983. During the 156 years of its operation, the mill made a significant contribution to Newsome. The village has grown around the mill, which was the main local employer for a long time. Many families who live in Newsome today have a direct relationship to the building.

The main building on the site is an impressive four-storey mill. This is the most prominent building in Newsome and is also a well-known Huddersfield landmark.
It can be seen clearly from Huddersfield town centre and the surrounding district. This building was constructed in the 1880s, and replaced an earlier mill building that was lost to fire in 1872.

Its been about three years since I was here last - The building really has gone down hill in that time! The spiral staircase has been stripped too which was probably the best bit.

All that said its still worth a look just for the clock tower.
