Cotton mill, built in 1856 for Peter Whitehead, who perhaps was its designer if not its architect. Coursed squared rough-faced sandstone. Mainly five storeys of equal height, with uniform 9-pane vertical windows. Not of symmetrical layout. Three and two-storey wings share slender, coupled pilaster strips, at corners and elsewhere, with main block. Mostly flat-roofed over rudimentary cornice. Very tall chimney rises from pedestal with quoins and cornices and has bands and cornice at head. Interior has cast-iron columns supporting the arched brick ceilings.
