Historic restorationwith modern methods
Peter Cox has been contracted to treat woodworm and fungal decay on a major refurbishment project in Huddersfield. Acre Mill is a listed wire mill which adjoins Huddersfield Royal
Infirmary, and will eventually become a new outpatient centre.
Peter Cox Yorkshire office is responsible for the project. Branch Manager Gary Laird said: “Acre Mill was once regarded by locals as the biggest mill in the world as it went three-quarters of the way around the “Globe” – the name of the local pub, now known as The
Nightingale. The contractors are keen to preserve as much of what is left of the
original structure as possible and with our considerable experience working
with historical buildings, we were the obvious choice.
