Built in 1831 as steam-powered scribbling, carding and fulling mill by group of eighteen local clothiers. Original complex included a two-storeyed ten-bay mill incorporating an internal end engine house, attached boiler house with drying floors over the boilers, chimney, single-storeyed cloth dryhouse and a dyehouse. Rag-grinding shed added before 1850, when mill was fully integrated with both spinning and weaving conducted on site. The complex is typical of the Heavy Woollen area in its inclusion of rag-grinding sheds and is an interesting example of a company mill.
