Reinvigorating Wigan’s core

  • Project: Eckersley Mills, Wigan, Greater Manchester
  • Client: Maryland Securities
  • Scale: Mixed use; residential, commercial and a hotel
  • Value: £30-40m

The Eckersley Mills site contains a substantial group of Grade II listed Mill buildings dating from 1827. 

Lathams was commissioned to produce a full landscape study and subsequent site masterplan that re-establishes historic links and materials between the mills and the proposed new architecture. 

The external works design include paving materials, planting palettes, lighting strategy, 106 agreement plans, cycle routes, circulation routes, parking strategy, site sections and typical details.

 Lathams also prepared plans to re-develop and convert three existing mill buildings and integrate these with new contemporary residential and commercial buildings along with a new marina, hotel, a new arts centre and public squares.
