block with short 2-bay wing to rear.
EXTERIOR: main elevation of 17 bays (6-5-6) with advanced and
pedimented central section. 4 storeys and basement. All
windows have flat-arched gauged brick heads and 36-pane sashes
(some 4-pane sashes and transomed windows to ground floor).
Former main doorway disused in bay 3: Doric case, 6-panelled
door with radial fan (building now entered from doorway in the
curtain wall to Oxford Road). Clock in apex of pediment, and
bell cupola to roof. Heavy moulded stone cornice.
External stair tower to rear right with privy tower adjoining,

INTERIOR: single span with timber beams and queen post roof

supplementary steel columns and supports introduced more
recently. Cast-iron columns support roof structure of weaving
sheds, forming a continuous working area.
The mill is an interesting example of an integrated site which
included silk manufacture and throwing, weaving and dyeing.
