Damside Mill is a furniture workshop and  upholstery studio in Haworth, West Yorkshire. The last working part of the old Lees Mill, it has been brought back to life by Anthony and the Damside team as a place where high quality designer furniture is created, while upholstery and furnishing courses are run in the studio.

We are committed to retaining it as a working part of Haworth’s industrial and creative heritage.

Damside is the last working part of the historic Lees Mill in Haworth.

It sits just off Lees Lane near the Bronte Hotel, inside a modern housing development.

We are committed to retaining it as a working part of Haworth’s industrial and creative heritage.
