2. Set well back from the road in an unusually open site, Buttershaw Mill is a virtually unaltered example of a mid C19 large worsted mill. It was built by the firm of S Bottomley and Brothers 1851-52, who first set up business in self employing hand loom weavers, later moving to Brighouse and then to Low Moor where they became established in the worsted trade. The firm subsequently expanded into alpaca and mohair. The plain 4-storey and attic spinning mill is built of sandstone "brick" with a long range of 22 marginal glazed, thin linteled, windows on ashlar sill bands. At the south-west corner is an ornate stair tower with 2 arched lights to each face and similar openings to the crowning belvedere with pyramidal lead roof and decorated iron weathervane. Slate roof with coped gable ends, corbel brackets to eaves. Linking the mill proper with the low parapeted range of the weaving shed, is the 2½-storey engine house surmounted by a triangular pediment; 2 tall round headed first floor windows in grooved ashlar surrounds and 2 smaller ones on ground floor with linking impost string. The rear elevation of the spinning mill has a bowed stair tower to centre. Internally a central row of cast iron columns support timber cross beams. The chimney stack to the north of mill has been lopped.
