Built in 1870-2 as an integrated woollen mill. Rare example of single-storeyed layout with sequence of processes arranged logically within a main shed around central power source. Detached sheds provided boiler house, dyehouse and some finishing rooms. Offices on main road frontage. Engine house designed for horizontal engine, but original replaced in 1912, possibly occasioned by expansion of sheds. Rope drive from engine to pulley wheels on central spine wall.
