Water-powered mill established in late 18th century for cotton spinning but by early 19th century used also for worsted spinning. After 1830 used entirely for worsted spinning. Parts of early mill survived a rebuilding of c1889, as did engine house added to mill before 1850. Short row of cottages with warehouse in basement built in 1820. After 1884 two sheds built; mill rebuilt entirely as three-storeyed twelve-bay steam-powered building (designed by J Robertshaw and Son, Bradford); and a crenellated boundary wall with office controlling site access constructed. Power system remodelled 1901 with addition of new engine and rope drive.
