Laurence Daw, from Cheshire Estates, said: "We are a development company based in Cheshire and Manchester. Earlier this year we came across the very unique former carpet weaving mill, namely Spenbrook Mill.

"Being positioned within an area of natural outstanding beauty and a very unique position it was too difficult not to purchase the site."
