Description

Built in 1826-7 as steam-powered scribbling and fulling mill by established Ossett clothier and sold in 1836 to a partnership of twenty-nine local clothiers who ran it under the style 'The Healey New Mill Company'. Original mill, of stone and brick, of three storeys with an engine house between main working part (eight bays) and a two-bay narrower end perhaps used for warehousing. The mill is of fireproof construction with cast-iron beams and joists and a stone-flagged floor. Minor buildings included a dyehouse and a single-storeyed heated cloth dryhouse. After 1881 mill was used mainly for the manufacture of shoddy and mungo, and a rag warehouse and a rag-grinding shed built.
