Established in 1791-2 as steam-powered mill for processing cotton and wool, built to design of John Sutcliffe of Halifax. Purchased in 1823 by Hives and Atkinson, former partners in Marshall's Mill, Holbeck, becoming one of largest flax-spinning mills in Leeds. Site came to comprise four substantial multi-storeyed mills (A Mill rebuilt 1823, B Mill of 1833, C Mill of c1836-9, and D Mill of 1856), all but latest partly or wholly fireproof, specialised warehouses for flax, line, tow and yarn, and extensive offices. Part demolished.
