ACKLINGTON GUYZANCE BRIDGE NU 20 SW 7/23 The Dye House II GV

Mill building. 1775, converted into flats 1968. Squared stone with roughly- tooled dressings (except for top floor, brick in Dutch bond). Welsh slate roof. 3 storeys, 14 windows. Each floor slightly recessed. Ground floor shows C20 openings; upper floors have 2-pane casements with slightly-projecting sills, those on top floor under segmental arches. Coped gables. The two left bays are a 1985 extension in facsimile. Similar fenestration to rear. Initially built as a foundry for tin and iron, and converted to a woollen mill by John Reed in 1791, remaining in use as such until 1884; the derelict building was taken over by Ellwood Holmes of Newcastle in 1915 to make Hydrate of Alumina, a white pigment previously obtained from Germany. A Gilks water turbine in the millrace provided hydroelectric power, the mill being one of the first business premises thus lit in the country. The factory closed in 1930 after pollution of the river caused the Duke of Northumberland to refuse renewal of the lease.

Listed for historical interest.
