Circa 1820. Purpose-built to gather former cottage hand-loom weavers under one roof
to improve efficiency and maintain competition of hand-loom weaving with newer
methods of production. Coursed, square rubble. 3 storeys. Flush with pavement
of load, aligned with adjacent cottage terrace. Continuous band of 23 weavers' win-
dows on top floor, below eaves, separated by square mullions; each sub-divided by
wooden mullions into 3 lights, with transom two-thirds towards top. Similar band
of windows in each gable. First floor has 5 similar windows on the left but not
in band; to right are 5 larger, more widely-spaced sash windows. On ground floor,
below the left-hand 5, are 3 equally-spaced similar but taller windows. To right
of these is an archway, with semental keyed head, now blocked. Matching sash windows
below 2nd and 3rd windows of first floor. Door with cornice head to right of each.
2 3-window bays below right-hand sashes, with tall cornice-head door between. All
