Cliffe Mill was built as a worsted mill in 1820 for Joseph Bearland, but very much
enlarged and extended circa 1860-70. The central block appears to be entirely of
this period. The principal feature is the large Italianate engine house. Rising
from a battered rock faced base, there are 2 low ground and mezzanine storeys and a
tall main storey. Sandstone "bricks", massive rusticated quoin pilasters, deep
moulded cornice on console brackets. The main storey has tall round headed windows
set on sill band; impost string links the archivolt arches with spaced rock faced
voussoirs. The windows are wider spaced on the longer east and west sides.
Extending west from the engine house is a 2-storey range of 13 windows with a similar
console bracket cornice rising from a bed mould in the ashlar frieze. Sill bands
and flat band between storeys with segmental heads of ground floor windows cut into
