The Mill is a 19th century building that has been renovated and refurbished into seven self contained flats. The flats are spacious and consist of a bedroom, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and WC. There is ample amount of storage space. It is fully fitted with gas central heating. All of the flats are fitted with double glazed windows and smoke alarms. There are 3 flats that can be accessed from the main road, which is situated on the ground floor. On the upper floor, we have four flats that can be accessed, via a communal entrance. For young people, who have acquired good independent skills, they would be considered for the external flats, whilst those young people, who require greater supervision and support, may benefit from the internal flats, where staff will be able to offer intensive support with a view to move on to external flats that would offer them greater independence and autonomy.
The Mill is situated in a residential area, 1 mile from Ashton-under-Lyne town centre. There is a good range of public transport links to Manchester Town Centre, Oldham and a good range of local amenities.

Downstairs has a communal living room, dining room and kitchen, all of which are designed and decorated with a modern feel, with the young people in mind.
