Doors with overlight in plain surround to bays 1, 4 and 5; 2-, 3- and 4-light restored thin stone mullioned windows in plain stone surrounds. 9-window warehouse range has 3 steps up to doorway with plain surround right, 9-pane central pivoting windows; a change in stonework indicates rebuilding/raising above ground-floor lintel level.

Warehouse range has 4-light mullion window and 2 paired square windows left, the remaining windows as front. INTERIOR: not inspected. Thomas Lloyd rebuilt Armley Mills and leased it to Israel Burrows and Christopher Hill; by 1793 Israel and his brother John occupied the houses and used part of the premises for their own weaving business. Although now in an isolated part of the site the houses originally stood on the main path into the mill from the river ford just downstream. In the early C20 the warehouse was of 3 storeys and extended further west.
