A fairly early worsted mill built in 1841 and extended in 1847. The mill was built
to the order of Samuel Dracys, an important Horton mill owner and inventor of the
card cutting machine. Two long, 2-storey, sandstone "brick" ranges parallel with
the road. Stone slate roofs with block brackets to the eaves. Ashlar lintels and
sills to close set fenestration. Segmental voussoir archways to each range with
dated keystones. Later C19 link between the 2 ranges. Three-storey rear wing to
1841 block, the gable end surmounted by a bellcot and containing an oculus. Some of
the windows on the rear elevations and wing retain original small pane glazing. In
rear yard of 1847 part is a doorway flanked by octagonal piers.
