Steam-powered flax-spinning mill, now works. 1838, with later
C19 additions. By Matthew Murray, with additions by 1850 and
1884, the latter to designs by JM Fawcett of Leeds. Red brick
in English garden wall bond, 3:1; slate roof.
4 storeys, 18 bays with chimney at NW end incorporated in
later 2-storey extension. Main range: ashlar plinth;
small-paned wooden cross windows in openings with
slightly-cambered brick arches and projecting stone sills;
various doorways and pentices; 3-storey bow at NW corner.
Full-height projecting bowed stair turret to SE gable having
ground-floor doorway, 3 windows to each floor and flanked by
blind windows in end wall of main range; hipped roof.
At NW end is extension; stone-coped twin gables having, on SW
side, an oculus to the apex and bellcote to one gable and a
finial to the other. From this rises the tapering octagonal
INTERIOR: the first 3 floors have a central row of circular
cast-iron columns supporting inverted T-beams which carry
brick-arched fireproof floors. Wooden roof trusses.
The mill originally had a beam engine by Fenton, Murray and
Wood at the NW end. Originally built for flax spinning, the
mill had a weaving shed added by the 1850s; after the early
1860s it was used mainly for linen and woollen manufacture.
Part of the complex has been demolished.
