Main block of 3 storey warehouse,
5 storey spinning mill and spinning
shed at Drummond's Mill

Engine house and chimney south of
5 storey block at Drummond's Mill
SE 1533 34/801 12.1.79


Drummond's Mill was built in 1861 to the designs of Lockwood and Mawson. A more
sober application of Italianate detail than that first introduced by the architects for
the Saltaire Mills. Large, 5 storey rectangular spinning mill of sandstone "brick"
with ashlar dressings. Broad pedimented gable ends and projecting eaves cornice
supported on console brackets. 26 close set windows to side ranges on sill bands
to each floor. Projecting stair turrets flanked both north and south fronts
originally, arched lights to each floor and surmounted by twin arched belvederes
with pyramid roofs and iron crested spike finials. The flanking turrets on the
Lumb Lane side have now been removed. Fireproof construction with cast iron pillars
and double skin floors. The slate roof is supported internally by a sophisticated
system of laminated elliptical arched timber trusses. Fronting Lumb Lane is a
3 storey sandstone "brick" warehouse range with pedimented gable ends and taller
pediment gable section to right hand end. Console bracketed eaves. Close set windows
on sill bands. A spinning shed block links this 3 storey range with the 5 storey
block which in turn has a link south to the engine house. This is built on 3 storeys
with flat arched windows and stone slate roof. At its east end is the chimney stack
which is one of the best mill chimneys in Bradford. Tall and slender octagonal
shaft, rising from square plinth, with console bracketed crown.
