Work has begun on converting one of Sheffield’s most historic industrial sites into luxury housing.

Loxley Works, a former mill building which was used during the city’s steelworks peak, was originally built in the 19th century.

Architectural firm Coda Studios will preserve the site’s central industrial building, based off Loxley Road, while creating 10 loft-style houses by developers Campbell Homes.

The site was abandoned several decades ago.

Coda managing director David Cross said: “This was a difficult and challenging project because we knew we were working on a totally unique development and one that we were anxious to maintain.

“The loft style dwellings use the original industrial features of these historic buildings but at the same time remain completely true to the Green Belt setting, preserving the history and heritage of the area.

“We feel our design team has created something totally unique for the Loxley Valley and we are delighted that the project is now beginning.”
