About Gaunts Ltd

Gaunts Property Ltd - from historic textile mills to thriving commercial properties

The Gaunt family can be traced back to the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1, 1558 - 1603. The family history is rich in terms of it's connection to the area of Calverley, Pudsey and Farsley, and it's involvement in textiles, first as clothiers and subsequently as Worsted Spinners and Woollen and Worsted manufacturers at Springfield Mills and Broom Mills. The current Limited Company was founded in 1896 by Reuben Gaunt.

Worsted Spinning came to an end in 1972 at Springfield Mills and the Company ended cloth manufacturing in 1998. The letting of property commenced in the mid seventies at Springfield Mills as the family sought to utilize its assets in a fast changing world. The portfolio was extended by acquisition of other textile mills and conversions and by purchasing individual buildings too.

Family owned and managed, we take pride in our ability to transform your individual requirements into a reality. We also value and take great pride in the community which reflects our heritage and is a critical part of our philosophy.
