Mill building. Late. C18. Coursed squared stone, stone slate roof. 3 storeys, 10 bays. Built on a north-south axis. Ground floor: wheel housing under voussoired round arch at left. Other openings altered, but 2 16-pane sash windows in plain stone surrounds with raised cills remain. 1st floor: casement windows in plain stone surrounds with raised cills; loading door inserted in bay 3. 2nd floor: band. Loading door on left. Casement windows with stone lintels and cills. Part of a complex of mill buildings, others now demolished, which was important in containing the first cotton mill in Keighley. The original mill building was begun by the Ramsdens of Halifax and completed by Clayton and Walshman who began cotton spinning in June 1780. The machinery was made under the direction of Sir Richard Arkwright. Since the cotton-spinning process was new to this area a number of employers were sent to Arkwright's works at Cromford, Derbyshire, to master the techniques involved. (Hodgson, pp 212-213). In the C19 the mill was converted to worsted. J Hodgson, Textile manufacture in Keighley, 1879.
