    The steam-powered worsted mill was built by James Akroyd in 1825. This was one of the largest mills in the district. The mill was said to be fire-proof. In 1827, Akroyd built the first Jacquard looms in Britain, and the mill was iron-framed and fitted with stone floors the first in any British mill to support the machinery. The mill suffered a huge fire in the early 1900s, but survived due to its construction.

    The access to this mill was rather easy, as locals have ripped nails out of concrete and knocked down bricks for the entrance! The entire ground floor was pitch black, and from other reports I've seen people going up a big concrete stair case, which we have found to be ripped out of the wall. We used the back stair case all the way up. There really isn't much to see at all as this mill is stripped bare. Each floor looks pretty identical apart from all the graffiti, but otherwise a good visit :) Rather peaceful at the top actually
