The Linen Factory

A decline in the overall importance of the linen industry in the post war years led to economic stagnation of this once thriving community, where the mill was the prinicpal source of local employment. Since the mill closed in the 1980s, Milford rapidly became a forgotten village, the tall factory chimney keeping a mourneful watch over a valley of better days.

Finally it was time for it to go as well, demolished with the factory site in 2001 to make way for a new private housing development.

However, the phenomenal interest created by the penalty kick story has given the village a timely and invigorating lease of life. As the Home of the Penalty Kick becomes home to more and more new families, Milford will reverberate once more to the sounds of its prosperous past.
