Greenholme Mills

Burley in Wharfedale

With the current development of the Greenholme Mills site, this seemed to be an opportune time to briefly reflect on its past, to take a glimpse of how it’s recently been operating since ceasing to trade as a worsted mill, and then to catch up with this exciting conversion into living accommodation.

We intend to concentrate predominantly on the future aspect, as the historical details are comprehensively documented, particularly in the 

 Archives section within the Burley Library, operated and maintained by members of the Burley History Group – where you will soon be able to visit when the library itself is re-opened after the present lockdown.

We’ll be compiling this article initially from documents and photos held in the library, and then later from resources funded by the Community Trust – mostly in the form of digital photographs.
