Celebrating 15 years

Kingston Mills development, Bradford on Avon

A reflection on Kingston Mills

19th July 2016

It took 15 years for a disused manufacturing site in Wiltshire to be consented for mixed use development.

The regeneration of Kingston Mills, a classic brownfield site and formerly home to a woollen mill and latterly, a rubber-works factory, posed a number of challenges.

Five years since we began our ecology surveys and assessments on the historic Wiltshire site, we’re pleased to report the development’s environmental success. Our monitoring of its inhabitant colonies of rare lesser horseshoe and brown long-eared bats has shown the species to be particularly healthy, following long-term measures to protect their habitats.

Today, Kingston Mills features a range of converted and individually designed homes by architectural firm, Nash Partnership, as well as shops, offices, cafés and public open space.

The Bradford on Avon riverside site’s development has seen it winning industry recognition and awards, including housebuilding construction firm Galliford Try receiving the Royal Town Planning Institute’s Local Regeneration and property developer Linden Homes winning the Sunday Times Award for Development of Historic Grade.
