The water powered mill produced cotton goods, but later changed to worsted and finally closed in 1991 After 1830 used entirely for worsted spinning. After 1884 two sheds built; mill rebuilt entirely as three-storeyed twelve-bay steam-powered building (designed by J Robertshaw and Son, Bradford); and a crenellated boundary wall with office controlling site access constructed. Power system remodelled 1901 with addition of new engine and rope drive. The Mill is now a residential development- converted into flats and houses in 2000.
