    A huge pair of mills built in 1895 and 1902 respectively, constructed in an Italianate style with a similarly stylish office building. It remained a cotton mill until 1967 and following that had various other companies occupy the premises, the last being a furniture wholesaler before the buildings were vacated in 2016.

    Despite the whole complex being protected at Grade II listed status, the local council voted in favour of demolishing the entire place and it was totally flattened in mid-2019.
