Established in 1839 as a woollen-finishing mill by a partnership of local clothiers. By 1859 two partners, Joseph Jubb senior and junior, had acquired control and redeveloped the site as an integrated woollen mill, constructing first a weaving shed c1860 and then a four-storeyed fireproof mill (1863), the latter with a handsome elevation to the street and a corner stair tower with crenellated parapet. Document of 1882 reveals uses of different floors of the mill, with milling, washing, raising and cutting on ground floor and scribbling, carding and spinning on upper floors. Subsequent development included expansion of the sheds and rebuilding of original finishing buildings.
