IT has been one of the success stories of Huddersfield's regeneration.
And now a stunning photographic record has been produced of the rebirth of Priestroyd Mills.
The 1535 Melting Point project - a £20m scheme by Honley-based Lanson Developments - has been captured by Huddersfield-based photographer Richard Littlewood.
Work to transform the run-down Priestroyd Mills into 190 one and two-bedroom apartments is almost complete and developers have moved on to adjoining buildings for the next stage of the development.
The ambitious scheme is one of Huddersfield's largest-ever residential developments.
Fifty-seven apartments were created in the first of four phases on the site at the corner of Queen Street South and Firth Street.
Prices ranged from £77,500 to £195,000 when they first went on sale.
The four-year development programme also includes a restaurant and leisure facilities.
Littlewood spent weeks behind the scenes as an army of builders transformed the huge compex.
He captured its rundown state, the decay and desolation.
But the book then watches the conversion unfold, ending with the spectacular luxury of the apartments and the clever use of original features.
Joe Cookson, Lanson's managing director, said: "We wanted to bring the next generation of town centre living to Huddersfield and gave it a completely unique twist.
"In the years ahead I believe 1535 will stand as an important landmark in the story of our towns' urban renewal".
The name 1535 The Melting Pot was chosen because the grade two listed mill buildings are a former iron foundry. Iron melts at 1535°C.'
The ironworks was founded by John Haigh in 1835.
In 1971, the company merged with Chadwick Machine Company, of Marsh Mills, Cleckheaton, and operated as Haigh-Chadwick Ltd.
In 1977, the roof of the mill was destroyed in a big fire and it subsquently fell into dereliction.
