Entrepreneur Richard Sym outside Elizabeth Mill in Reddish which is set to be converted into apartments."High hopes for Cotton Quarter. Show apartments at Victoria Mill, on Houldsworth Street, were opened to the public last week and work on converting neighbouring Elizabeth Mill into flats is expected to start in the very near future. Two further developments have also been proposed for the ‘Cotton Quarter’ site, which will eventually bring around 1,000 residents into the Houldsworth Conservation Area. Developer and owner of Broadstone Mill, Richard Sym, believes this influx of people will help promote the spread of cafes, restaurants and bars in central Reddish. He also believes the new homes could support plans to set up a small business incubation zone in the area, which is increasingly being referred to as Houldsworth Village.
