Where Life
Meets Style

Retail Revolution Comes To The North West

From its Industrial Revolution beginnings, Botany Bay is being reinvented as an innovative mixed use development with an outlet village at its heart. Bringing it to life as an iconic lifestyle destination will be a unique marriage of quality heritage, sustainable redevelopment and the great English canalside.

A former Victorian cotton mill will sit adjacent to the site; a striking backdrop to nearly 300,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure offers, on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

Built in 1855

Built in 1855, the famous Botany Bay cotton mill will sit alongside the beautiful Canal Square. A landmark building in the North West with an enduring legacy, the mill is now set to play a new and different role as Botany Bay reinvents itself for the 21st Century.
