OVER 50 former employees of Oakes' Wellington Mills enjoyed a reunion.
The get-together, organised by Mark Foster and his staff, was for people who used to work at the mill.
It has now been turned into flats called Heritage Lofts and an office complex, Heritage Exchange.
They were welcomed by Mark, who is managing director of Heritage Lofts, and enjoyed refreshments and a look around the flats and offices, built in the imposing mill complex above Lindley.
Erin Lees, manager of Heritage Exchange, said: "It was a really good afternoon.
"We decided to organise the reunion after various people kept popping in to the complex and telling us they used to work here.
"A lot of them appeared to have stayed friends over the years and were really impressed at how Wellington Mills has been refurbished."
Also at the reunion was local author Vivien Teasdale, who featured some of the former Wellington Mills employees in her book Huddersfield Mill Memories.
This captures detailed and fascinating accounts of day- to-day life in local mills.
Some of her books are on sale in The Coffee Mill cafe in the Heritage complex.
Guests at the reunion swapped stories and looked at old photo from their days at the mill.
