Woodhouse Mill, engine-
7/325 house and detached chimney
20 m to south.

G.V. II*

Mill. 1832. Ashlar, stone slate roof. 5 storeys. Elevation to north fronts
Rochdale Canal and is of 10 bays originally. The 5th bay has taking-in door to
each floor over which is set pediment with band, cat-head and bullseye bearing
date. Coped gable to right only. To left is added 2 bays of 4 storeys. Each
bay has windows to each floor with plain stone surrounds, projecting sills
glazed with small panes. Right hand return wall of 4 bays. 2 bays of windows.
Stair tower breaks forward a bay and is blind to its north and west face. Rear
has added bay of windows in stair tower which carries above roof in brick to
form water tower. Attached to rear is 2-storey engine house which has tall
semi-circular arched window forming 2-span roof with former office. Chimney has
pitch faced stone to base, square on plan, with moulded cornice and tall
circular tapering chimney with ringed cap.
This mill is of particular interest because it was steam driven from its
inception at an early date. It is of some distinction, retains its fenestration
and window glazing, and fronting the canal is prominent in the landscape.
