New Mill (Formerly Listed as: JERSEY STREET, Ancoats Mill building, part of Murray's Mill)



Cotton spinning mill, now disused. Built in 1804. Red brick in Flemish bond, with slate roof. Cast-iron and timber internal structure. Six storeys, 22 bays, with slightly advanced 6-window range to centre, and 4-window gabled returns. Cambered brick heads to 9-paned windows. Semicircular stair turret in centre of rear elevation, which also has narrow vent-towers to each side. Detached engine house beyond the stair turret was partly rebuilt in the late C19 or early C20 (a new engine house built early C20 on conversion to rope drive does not survive). Original internal structure comprised cruciform cast-iron columns supporting timber beams and joisted floors: these survive on upper storeys, and have been replaced with cylindrical columns and steel beams elsewhere.

The mill was built as part of Adam and George Murray's textile works, established on this site in 1798, and expanded to form a courtyard in which three spinning mills were linked by warehouse and office blocks around a courtyard and canal basin. Included as a now rare example of early non-fireproof construction, and as an important component of Murray's mills.
