Sky-House, Oughtibridge will feature twenty-four of the next generation 3 bed Sky Houses, six 3 bed end terraced homes with expansive roof gardens (three with riverside balconies), five 4 bed townhouses with riverside gardens alongside a new cottage and four apartments within the Old Mill Cottages.

The striking urban form creates three blocks of riverside homes separated by landscaped open space creating riverside pocket parks- each house has a first-floor balcony overlooking the river! The Old Mill Cottages will be restored into new homes alongside a new linear run of townhouse with riverside gardens completing the built form. At the end of the lane a private wooded copse will be retained for an informal picnic area or children’s play.

Sky-House, Oughtibridge is part of a new development of 240 homes by Barratt Homes creating one of the most sought after and desirable addresses in the Don Valley and North Sheffield. The expansive site sits along the banks of the River Don within the forested valley complete with riverside walks, parks and eventually (subject to planning approval) a new Food Hall by The Milestone Group within the Old Mill.

The Old Mill will become the center piece of the development restoring the Old Tissue Works into a vast industrial hall complete with independent food traders, bars, coffee shops and co-working space. The Mill will have a series of outdoor spaces overlooking the Valley creating the perfect place to work, rest and play in one of Sheffield’s most beautiful natural settings.

Construction will start in the Winter of 2020.

1, 2, 3 and 4 bed homes

Oughtibridge

The origins of Oughtibridge date back to the first part of the 12th century when a ford existed in the area over the Don. The ford was managed by a man named Oughtred who resided in a nearby cottage.

When a bridge was built on the spot in approximately 1150 it became known as Oughtred’s Bridge or by his nickname of Oughty’s Bridge and the small settlement around the bridge adapted the same name.

The hamlet of Oughtibridge grew up as a focal point for local farming communities and the first documented mention of Oughtibridge occurred in 1161 when one of the signatories of an agreement on the grazing rights of Ecclesfield Priory was “Ralph, the son of Oughtred”. The name Ughtinabrigg, meaning Oughtred’s Bridge in Middle English, was used in the document.

Oughtibridge Mill

The Dixon family bought the paper mill to the northwest of the village in 1871 and it became a flourishing business, being one of the first to use wood pulp to produce paper instead of rags. The mill specialised in tissues, making the Dixcel brand for many years.

Wood pulp for Dixon’s paper mill was imported from the Toppila pulp mill (Toppila Oy) in Oulu, Finland from 1931–1985. The Dixons signed an agreement with the railway company to provide a siding for the works to transport raw materials and the finished product. The factory had several owners after the Dixons sold the mill in the 1970s, namely British Tissues, Jamont UK, The Fort James Corporation and from 2000 it became part of the Georgia-Pacific group.

The paper mill was closed in 2007 leaving only converting lines operational with the two tissue machines being mothballed. All production ceasing in 2015
