Description

Steam-powered worsted mill, designed in 1871 by C H Hargreaves of Bradford as integrated factory with combing and spinning in a multi-storeyed mill and weaving in a large shed. Decline of the Bradford trade after c1870, however, caused a change of plans. The shed, completed first, was run by a specialist weaving firm, and the main mill, left unfinished and then completed to new designs of 1874 by Hargreaves and Bailey of Bradford, was apparently occupied by a separate firm of spinners. It has four storeys, basement and attic and is eighteen bays long. This change at Young Street reflects the wider trend towards specialised working in the worsted industry after c1870. Power transmission in shed was by rope drive along rope alley.
