A famous former mill store is set to be transformed into an outdoor pursuits centre.

The £1 million scheme, for the old Ponden Mill site near Stanbury, would create up to 20 full and part-time jobs.

The three-storey centre would accommodate between 64 and 70 people, mainly in dormitories, and on the ground floor there would be a cafe open to the public. Camping provision is also planned.

Some activities for visiting schools and similar groups would be provided on-site and other pursuits will take place at neighbouring locations.

A planning application has been submitted to Bradford Council, and if permission is given it is hoped to have some facilities – notably the cafe and camping – operational by this summer.
