Description

Built c1880 probably as workshops and warehouse by wool and waste dealer, but by 1895 functioning as a dyeworks. Change of use involved conversion of existing buildings and addition of new ones, resulting in small complex of one and two-storeyed buildings including dyehouse, warehouse and office, boiler house with perforated iron floor and drying room over, and small engine house, with horizontal engine in situ. Some of these buildings were designed by M Brayshaw, later Brayshaw and Dixon, of Bradford. Site now includes a court of workers' houses, a rare survival from the mid 19th century. The works is of interest in demonstrating how small dyeing concerns, perhaps specialising in one aspect of dyeing, could co-exist with the great Bradford dyeworks like Bowling and Oakwood.
