Brookhouse Mill

II

Cotton spinning mill, now upholstery works. 1844-45, altered
and enlarged. Red brick in English grden wall bond (5+1), with
sandstone dressings (roof concealed). Two blocks: main range
on north-south axis, and smaller block to east of north end of
this, linked to it by later additions. The main range is
rectangular under a 3-span roof, 4 storeys, in 2 builds, the
first of 6:2:6 windows, the centre breaking forwards slightly,
with pilastered corners which have massive moulded stone caps,
and a parapet with an upstand to the centre. Ground floor to
left covered by deep single-storey extension, and 5th bay to
right covered by modern turret of corrugated sheet; otherwise,
all windows have raised sills and wedge lintels, and
replacement 6-pane glazing. 8-window addition to right-hand
(north) end, in similar style and materials. Five-window south
end wall, with 3 unequal gables above (these rebuilt). Rear
similar, and attached to this a former workshop, single storey
(but reduced to 5 bays) with round-headed windows (4 still
with radiating iron glazing bars, others blocked), and arched
cast-iron roof trusses. The east block is an irregular square
with a projecting stair-tower and canted right-hand corner, 5
storeys, 1:1:3:1 windows, the tower (to 2nd bay) and the
right-hand bay both pilastered like the main range; the 1st
bay (which is set back) has the upper half of a large
round-headed window with moulded surround (like an
engine-house window).
INTERIOR of main range: 3 rows of cast-iron columns carrying
timber beams; east front of ground floor apparently arcaded.
