    Visited with Host, not one you'll be running to add to "The List" but still worth a quick visit.

    History.....

    Glen mills was built in 1906 as a combined cotton-weaving shed and dyeworks, the different blocks abutting each other and sharing a common power source strategically placed between them. The mill, single storeyed but for part basements, has an architecturally-elaborate front elevation to the road with the entrance forecourt, originally partly glazed over, serving as its goods and service entrance. The engine and boiler houses are set side by side with a red brick chimney behind the latter, within the dyehouse. The weaving shed, which is thirteen bays wide with a 16-bay deep glazed saw-tooth roof, had offices along part of the front while the three tall gabled dyehouse ranges, originally with long louvred ventilators, were open into each other. The dyehouse was extended in two stages, the original roof replaced and other extensions added to the mill during the second half of the 20th century.
