Andy Thornton Antiques Company wants to divide the upper floors to create four or five shops, to use the lower floors perhaps as a cafe or wine bar and demolish the mainly single storey roadside buildings.

Andy Thornton Antiques Company wants to divide the upper floors to create four or five shops, to use the lower floors perhaps as a cafe or wine bar and demolish the mainly single storey roadside buildings.

The antiques business which employs 170 people, including 16 at the mill, would be confined to the rear and upper floors with a ground floor reception area.

Acording to the planning application, the company now requires less space and it has talked to experts about how the huge building might be used to ensure it remains viable.

It was felt unlikely a new tenant would want to occupy the whole of the surplus space.

As the Low Mill and house beside the road requires major repairs they could be pulled down to provide access, car parking space and open up views of the mill frontage.
