Mobbs Miller House interior



Mobbs Miller House was built between 1922 and 1925 by the in-house architect L.G. Elkins for the Co-operative Wholesale Society Ltd to be their flagship building in the famous Northampton shoe industry.

The building was used by the Co-Operative Society until its acquisition by the last manufacturers, Mobbs Miller in the 1960’s. It was then used for plastic unit soles and plastic heel production until the 1980’s.

This is the last great building of the Northampton boot and shoe industry, built at a time when the industry had already peaked and very few new customised buildings were being erected. The factory was carefully designed to blend into a suburban setting, close to Abington Park with its finely detailed fronts giving the appearance of municipal offices or an educational establishment.

In the 1990’s, the frontages were converted into commercial offices by Mark Cortis and the present management. Penkenna Ltd takes great pride in looking after the heritage and legacy of the building and maintenance is an ongoing project.

Some of the tenants at Mobbs Miller House have been with us for well over ten years. Penkenna believes in looking after all our tenants; large and small, long and short term. We aim to ensure that your time at Mobbs Miller House is a pleasant experience, and to facilitate this we have a staffed office within the building to deal with any issues arising.
