THE DEVELOPMENT – OVER 60% SOLD
Being able to be part of an area’s history is always an exciting opportunity, particularly when it means supporting an area to turn its past into its future. That’s precisely the case with Martin’s Mill, in Halifax. The historic mill was built in the late 1800s and provided plentiful employment for local workers. No longer viable as a mill, but too beautiful to let go to waste, the property is now being transformed into apartments for local residents.
Martin’s Mill enjoys a superb location, overlooking both the town of Halifax and the picturesque Shibden Valley countryside. It will continue to serve the town’s workers in its new incarnation, this time by housing professionals and their families in close proximity to the amenities of central Halifax.

Halifax is exciting property investors around the UK and beyond with its superb potential. The town has seen extensive redevelopment work create a host of new economic and cultural opportunities. At the heart of the new infrastructure is the Piece Hall – the reimagined former cloth hall that has become the epicentre of Halifax’s new cultural quarter.
Packed with independent shops, cafés and gourmet food outlets, the Piece Hall is a bustling destination that has seen 250,000 visitors descend on it since it reopened in August. The venue also has a capacity of 7,500 for music events and other cultural undertakings, providing Halifax with a flexible resource that is serving to make it the go to destination for culture in Yorkshire.
“The footfall will be continuous. The interest will be continuous. I’m really, really excited about the future.” Mark Richardson, Loafers Vinyl & Coffee, The Piece Hall
Having spoken to local businesses, the impact of the Piece Hall cannot be underestimated. It is the cornerstone of the new era that Halifax is entering, drawing new residents into the area and driving property prices up in a way that few regional UK towns can boast about.
This historic town of Halifax is nestled in the scenic Calderdale valley. It’s a very impressive town from a visual perspective, with Gothic facades and Victorian architecture vying for attention against the backdrop of an incredibly English vista of rolling hills.
Recent redevelopment has seen £19 million allocated to transforming Halifax into a key area for entertainment, from shopping and dining to cultural activities.
“Everything is good for Halifax and for Calderdale because of the investment that has been in place thus far, and what’s to come in the future.” Linden Thornton, Yorkshire’s Finest Estate Agents, The Piece Hall.
The influx of additional visitors as a result of the renovation of the Grade I Listed Piece Hall is already impacting on the local property market. Demand is strong for property in both the rental and sales markets, with property investors keen to be part of the town’s success story, even as professional tenants are keen to take advantage of the plethora of new economic opportunities that are springing up.
The thriving, dynamic atmosphere that pervades the town is hard to resist. Halifax is rapidly positioning itself as a rival to nearby Leeds as one of Yorkshire’s premier retail and leisure destinations, with visitors coming from far and wide to enjoy the town.
“We get a lot of tourists, get a lot of coach parties, get a lot of people from out of town, abroad… it’s like a little culture hub and Halifax didn’t have that before.” Katie, Harveys of Halifax, The Piece Hall
With funding in place to continue its cultural renaissance, Halifax is ensuring that it makes the most of every opportunity to capitalise on its current success, with residents, businesses and individuals alike keen to be part of the town’s vision for the future.
