03/06/91 Proctors' Works with attached
(Formerly Listed as:
Proctors Ironworks)


Formerly known as: Cow Lane Cotton Factory HAMMERTON STREET.
Cotton spinning mill, subsequently iron works. Built between
1827 and 1844, with engine house and chimney added between
1844 and 1851; late C19 additions to the front and south end,
including offices and a large crosswing which was formerly a
roller skating rink with a provision store in the basement.
Mostly unoccupied at time of survey (1991). Coursed squared
sandstone, with slate roofs.
PLAN: the principal element is a rectangular spinning block
built on the west bank of the River Calder; with a rectangular
engine house a short distance from the north end (now linked
to it by infilling); and a chimney very close to the west side
of this.
EXTERIOR: the spinning block is a 4-storey 8-window range, the
west front mostly covered by later additions built in the
former yard, and the rear (overlooking the river) with
vertical rectangular windows which have raised sills and plain
lintels, and a tall round-headed window close to the north
end, all these windows now blocked with brick. It has gable
copings with kneelers.
A full-height one-window link of random rubble joins the
spinning block to the 4-storey 2-window boiler house, which
has similar windows in the rear wall but at the front has
remains of one semicircular arch at ground floor level, and 3
loading doorways above this.
The chimney, approximately 0.5m from the front of the boiler
house, is circular with 20 metal straps and a massive square
INTERIOR: the spinning block has wooden floors carried on
wooden beams supported by a single row of cast-iron columns in
the centre of each floor; the engine house has been
remodelled, with iron beams to the floors; and the former
skating rink incorporates a spectators' gallery round a well.
