Built in 1826 by Samuel Cannan and originally known as Sammy Cannan Mill. In 1839
the chimney fell causing serious damage. The mill was largely rebuilt and extended
circa 185O by its new owner Charles Tetley, inventor of the centrifugal pump, who
gave the mill its present name. The mill stands at the foot of the streets of
workers cottages, the main block parallel with Great Horton Road. The main 4-storey
sandstone "brick" range of 2O bays probably comprises much of the original 1826
build. The long front is broken by 2 stair turrets crowned by pediments; sill bands,
moulded stone eaves, quoin pilasters. Close set linteled windows, coupled and
tripled narrower ones to turrets, ashlar arched and impost bands. Adjoining to west
is an extension of the same height fronting what was probably the engine house;
quoin pilasters, rusticated ashlar ground floor with vermiculated piers dividing tall
round arched windows and 2 flanking doors; 3 windows to upper floor, round arched with
linking impost string on first floor, segmental arches to rest. Tall round headed
side windows. Gabled and quoined waggon shed adjoins again to east dated 187O. To
the east and running north-west-south-east is a detached 4-storey block probably
added by Tetley with linking footbridge. Sandstone "bride", ashlar quoin pilaster,
sill bands returned to pedimental gable end. 16 windows west side has pilastered
doorway with heavy dentilled pediment.
