Tucked away in the valley of Eagley Brook, yet with every amenity on the doorstep, this former cotton mill complex has always been a very popular choice with its selection of unique properties in an equally unique setting.
With its industrial heritage dating back to the early water powered textile mills of the late 18th century, Eagley was further developed during the 19th century to include, alongside its mills, a model village with a workersâ€™ cottages, a school, library cricket pitch and bowling green and its own park with a bandstand where Eagley Mills Brass Band (who are still playing today) would entertain people. Bridge Mill, Valley Mill and Bridge Mill now offer apartment or cottage living with a selection of homes on or around Hough Lane with The Spread Eagle pub providing great hospitality to this day in one of the early terraced stone cottages. Eagley is situated alongside the centre of Bromley Cross with all of its amenities.
