About the employer

Milners of Leyburn, based in the heart of rural Yorkshire has been serving the Dales for over 130 years. We focus on stylish clothing collections for your wardrobe and elegant interiors for your home. We want you to love the way you look and love the way your home looks. We are dedicated to bringing you superb products and giving you exceptional advice and service. Milners’ story begins in 1883 when draper Christopher Milner, age 30, had a vision to bring everyday fashionable items to Wensleydale. The first Milners’ store opened in Hawes and Christopher spent the early years taking products to customers with his horse and trap, closely supported by his wife and five sons. Milners’ first advertisement read ‘New materials in dress goods, prints, galateas and skirtings’ with ‘Mrs Milner, having considerable experience in first class millinery and dress-making, intends making her first show of all the leading shapes in hats and bonnets’. Further stores were opened by his sons in Kirkby Stephen and in Leyburn. Milners moved into the existing building in Leyburn in 1966.
