Steam-powered woollen mill built in 1865-6. Occupied by fancy woollen manufacturer, possibly as spinning mill but also perhaps for weaving either by handlooms or powerlooms. Site comprised original mill (five storeys, the lower two fireproof, sixteen bays) with internal corner engine house, detached boiler house and chimney (demolished), and long added three-phase range of two storeys plus basement, all under a multi-span gabled roof. One of a group of Huddersfield mills run by woollen manufacturers but originally lacking sheds for weaving (See also Firth Street Mills, Albert Mills, Lockwood).
