Description

Steam-powered woollen mill, 1860s and later. Early history uncertain, but by 1900 site was a fully integrated mill with production divided between a mill of four and a half storeys (for scribbling and spinning) and sheds (for weaving, finishing and dyeing). Local concentration on use of recovered wool reflected in construction by 1915 of large rag warehouse and of rag-grinding sheds.
