New Build

Development Type

Located within seven miles north of Derby city centre offering 69 homes comprising one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom homes.

The Development

Milford Mills is located within seven miles north of Derby city centre in the heart of the Derwent Valley. Positioned along the River Derwent, the new riverside development is set within the countryside landscapes of Milford village centre. Wavensmere and Chevin Homes will be restoring these existing buildings to provide retail and leisure premises including a farm shop and community facilities.

This landmark part of Derbyshire’s industrial heritage dates back to 1780 when the former mills were some of the world’s first mechanised industrial spinning factories. This project will include the restoration of key historic features including the mill building, a 40-meter chimney and a lade for a hydro-electric mill that will be opened up and exposed.

Work on Milford Mills will begin in spring 2022.
