Description

Steam-powered cotton-spinning mill built in mid to late 1830s by James and John Ramsbotham to designs by William Fairbairn of Manchester. Bought, unused, by John Fielden who added a water-powered single-storeyed carding shed before opening it in 1848 and running it with Waterside Mill, Langfield, and other mills in and around Todmorden. Original pedimented mill is U-shaped on plan, six storeys high and of non-fireproof construction except over engine house; later sheds on two sides, warehouse, rebuilt in 1889, in front. Associated buildings include workers' housing, especially Robinwood Terrace. See also Waterside Mill, Langfield.
