Established by Benjamin Gott, woollen merchant, in 1792 as integrated woollen mill. Early complex comprised a large steam-powered mill for scribbling, carding and fulling, spinning rooms, long ranges of loomshops, a dyewood-grinding mill, probably dyehouses, and finishing shops. Later expansion saw rebuilding of dyehouses, construction of heated cloth dryhouses, the first, in 1814, being the earliest known example of the type in the county, extensions to the mill, including work between 1824 and 1829 by William Fairbairn, warehouses, and a gas plant. In terms of organisation of production and of scale, Bean Ing Mills was of great significance. Demolished.
