Notes

Note
Josuah Binns built himself a 'new mill' on this site 1819 and by 1824 had built another range, in partnership with, James Dean. They operated 18 pairs of mules and 14 carding engines. By 1833 a 20 h.p. steam engine had been installed and 93 people were employed, spinning medium-fine counts of yarn. The third extension was added by 1836 and power-loom weaving introduced. By 1845 the detached range was built, possibly for spinning and the manufacture of printing cloth. The remainder of the mill was spinning power-loom twist for Matthew Binns and GJ Wainwright, who left in the 1850's. Cotton spinning was carried on by Clementson and Leyland and by 1871 William Young and Co. were the sole occupants; the last recorded use as a mill was in 1876.
