Established in early 19th century as woollen scribbling and dyeware mill, later a scribbling and fulling mill. Bought in 1824 by Eyres family, woollen merchants, and rebuilt as large-scale integrated private mill. Earliest surviving building, probably c1825-30, is four-storeyed workshop for hand spinning and handloom weaving. Large steam-powered brick mill (four-storeyed, twenty-five bays) of 1833 and 1836, replacing earlier mill destroyed by fire, has timber internal construction but fireproof willey house on ground floor. One internal engine house, one attached engine house, internal boiler house. Long warehouse range (now curtailed) on street frontage. Workers' housing built nearby.
