Worsted mill, established c1819 with construction of water-powered spinning mill of three storeys and basement and seven bays. Occupied from c1850 by Merrall Brothers, who also worked from Lees Mill, Bingley, and Lowertown Shed and Mill, Haworth. Ebor Mills expanded with extensions to original mill, addition of large two-phase weaving shed fronted by a warehouse, and construction in 1887 of six-storeyed nineteen-bay mill, timber-floored over a fireproof basement, to designs by W and J B Bailey of Bradford and Keighley. Merralls ran all three of their mills as integrated worsted factories. Associated buildings: row of cottages next to mill, Ebor House and Longlands, and other manufacturers' houses.
