Steam-powered flax-spinning mill, now works. 1838, with later C19 additions. By Matthew Murray, with additions by 1850 and 1884, the latter to designs by JM Fawcett of Leeds. Red brick in English garden wall bond, 3:1; slate roof. 4 storeys, 18 bays with chimney at NW end incorporated in later 2-storey extension. Main range: ashlar plinth; small-paned wooden cross windows in openings with slightly-cambered brick arches and projecting stone sills; various doorways and pentices; 3-storey bow at NW corner. Full-height projecting bowed stair turret to SE gable having ground-floor doorway, 3 windows to each floor and flanked by blind windows in end wall of main range; hipped roof. At NW end is extension; stone-coped twin gables having, on SW side, an oculus to the apex and bellcote to one gable and a finial to the other. From this rises the tapering octagonal chimney. INTERIOR: the first 3 floors have a central row of circular cast-iron columns supporting inverted T-beams which carry brick-arched fireproof floors. Wooden roof trusses. The mill originally had a beam engine by Fenton, Murray and Wood at the NW end. Originally built for flax spinning, the mill had a weaving shed added by the 1850s; after the early 1860s it was used mainly for linen and woollen manufacture. Part of the complex has been demolished. (RCHME: Giles, C & Goodall, I: Yorkshire Textile Mills 1770-1930: 1992-: 44, 92, 99, 222).
