11/03/88 Chatham Mill
Cotton spinning mill, now used as warehousing etc. 1820, with
extension of 1823 along Lower Ormand Street. Brick with slate
roof, which has clerestory windows. Original block is
6-storeyed, 17 bays, with site of internal engine house
against gable wall to SW (round-arched opening partially
blocked and cut by C20 loading bay), with remains of chimney
aligned with this to NW. Taking-in doors to all floors towards
centre of rear elevation, reinforced with cast iron. Entrance
leading to staircase in rusticated arch in NE corner, within
archway to courtyard formed after extension of mill. Small
rectangular windows with cambered brickheads in each bay.
4-storeyed 12 bay wing to Lower Ormand Street, with courtyard
entry to left, and central doorway. Interior construction has
timber floors carried on cast iron columns in original range,
and fireproof construction to 1823 wing, in which cast iron
columns and beams carry transverse brick arches. Layout of
mill, including position of taking-in doors suggests possible
origins as room and power mill.
Included as a typical and coherent example of an early C19
mill, in which a single range has been extended to form an
L-plan, itself a typical pattern of growth.
