About the Building

The Atkins Building is the former home of Atkins of Hinckley who established a presence in Hinckley in 1722 and produced hosiery until 1995, by which time it was the oldest existing and operating hosiery factory in the world. In September 1995 the Atkins business was taken over by Coates Viyella who manufactured hosiery until the factory's closure in 2002.
