JERSEY STREET, Ancoats
(Formerly Listed as: JERSEY STREET, Ancoats Mill building, part of Murray's Mill)
Cotton spinning mill, now disused. Built in 1804. Red brick in
Flemish bond, with slate roof. Cast iron and timber internal
structure. 6-storeys, 22 bays, with slightly advanced 6-window
range to centre, and 4-window gabled returns. Cambered brick
heads to 9-paned windows. Semi-circular stair turret in centre
of rear elevation, which also has narrow vent-towers to each
side. Detached egine house beyond the stair turret was partly
rebuilt in the late C19 or early C20 (a new engine house built
early C20 on conversion to rope drive does not survive).
Original internal structure comprised cruciform cast iron
columns supporting timber beams and joisted floors: these
survive on upper storeys, and have been replaced with
cylindrical columns and steel beams elsewhere.
The mill was built as part of Adam and George Murray's textile
works, established on this site in 1798, and expanded to form
a courtyard in which 3 spinning mills were linked by warehouse
and office blocks around a courtyard and canal basin.
Included as a now rare example of early non-fireproof
construction, and as an important component of Murray's mills.
