12.7.67 Cressbrook Mill
Cotton mill, now disused. 1814-15 for William Newton. Rubble limestone, partly
rendered, with gritstone dressings and quoins. Hipped Welsh slate roof with
octagonal wooden cupola with ogee lead roof. Three storeys, plus basement, constructed
of timber beams and cast iron supports. Spiral stone staircase in projecting bay to
west. North elevation of twelve, plus two bays. The twelve bays symmetrical with the
centre four advanced beneath a pediment. Three tiers of twelve windows, the top ones
slightly smaller. Projecting stone lintels and sills. Some original glazing bar
sashes and small paned fixed lights. Clock face in the pediment. Two bays set back
to the right with four windows to the left, now blind, with iron Gothick glazing bars.
These are probably the remains of the original mill of 1779 which stood at right angles.
Three windows to the right, enlarged. Wheel pit to the north west. South elevation of
eleven bays, four-four-three, the centre four bays advanced beneath a pediment.
Three tiers of eleven windows as on the north side. Clock face in the pediment. The
clock, which works the two faces from the same mechanism, and the cupola were added
in 1837 to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Victoria. The cupola is octagonal with
round-arches, with projecting keyblocks and impost blocks. Modillion cornice and ogee
lead roof. The three bells are inscribed 'Thomas Mears of London Founder 1837'.
Lower, C20, building with sawtooth roof, attached along south side and not of
special interest. The mill closed down in 1965.
