Cotton mill, built in 1856 for Peter Whitehead, who perhaps was its designer
if not its architect. Coursed squared rough-faced sandstone. Mainly 5
storeys of equal height, with uniform 9-pane vertical windows. Not of
symmetrical layout. 3 and 2 storey wings share slender coupled pilaster
strips, at corners and elsewhere, with main block. Mostly flat-roofed, over
rudimentary cornice. Very tall chimney rises from pedestal with quoins and
cornices and has bands and cornice at head. Interior has cast-iron columns
supporting the arched brick ceilings.
