Description

Established in 1853 as steam-powered woollen mill. First buildings included fireproof mill of six storeys and fifteen bays, dyehouse, wash room, and sizing room. Mill has internal end engine house and attached boiler house with drying floors over boilers. New mill, small shed and warehouse added c1866, and new range with warehouse and dyehouse, to designs of M Beaumont of Huddersfield, built 1871 on the street front. Chief problem of interpretation lies in use of the mill: operated by woollen manufacturers, it had only a small shed, suggesting either use of main mills for weaving or employment of domestic weavers. Became a room and power mill after failure of original firm in the 1880s.
