House-hunters in West Yorkshire will be welcoming the launch of Tailors Green, a residential development of new homes built from natural stone in the historic Kirklees village of Shepley.

The Camstead Homes scheme will comprise 27 traditionally inspired properties, including four-bedroom townhouses and a selection of three- and four-bedroom detached houses with garages, set amidst the natural surroundings of the South Pennine Hills.

Shepley once enjoyed the enviable status as the richest village in England, thanks to its world-renowned reputation for the manufacture of tweed and worsted cloth, resulting in more than 16 firms of bespoke tailors establishing their base there. The new development will be built on the site of a long since demolished 19th-century former textile mill, built by James Kenyon, leading to the name of the scheme, Taylors Green.

Camstead Homes director Johnny Rapley commented: “I believe that the area retains the original magic and a real village feel, making it a wonderful place for a family to settle. Residents of Taylors Green will become part of a proud and happy local community. The village of Shepley serves as a popular commuter village for, Leeds, Sheffield Manchester, and offers a wide range of amenities and excellent schools as well as a host of leisure activities afforded by the spectacular surroundings making it a truly enviable place to live.

“It has been very important for us that Taylors Green blends in well with its surroundings so the design and landscaping have been inspired by the semirural location and local architecture. In response to the anticipated high levels of customer demand, we are working hard to deliver this unique development to the local and regional market. With work starting on site this summer we are now accepting expressions of interest.”
