Description

Steam-powered worsted mill, established 1871 by loom manufacturer. Designed by Lockwood and Mawson of Bradford as integrated mill with combing shed, mill, weaving shed and warehouse, but slump in fortunes of traditional Bradford product (cotton-warp worsteds) caused change to spinning mill. Weaving shed never built, mill left as unfinished shell, warehouse converted to act as spinning mill. Original mill building was completed only in 1903, to designs by Moore and Crabtree, Keighley.
