History

The original mill was built in 1868 on land which was purchased from Rawdon Baptist Church.

A clothier who lived in Little London, Thomas Pratt, was the owner of the site. Cloth was produced here until a terrible fire in 1906 which totally gutted most of the building. Scribbling and spinning machinery was totalle; but the weaving shed was not too badly damaged, the cost of the damage was £20,000. The fire left 300 workers unemployed.

The mill was rebuilt and became a Dye House. The management buy out only got the

dye works operational till its final closure in 2010

Agree, the factory wasn't much, but the old buildings at the former entrance were a bit special, I thought.
