It is an example of their developing constructional innovations, particularly designed to combat fire hazards and to provide light and airy working conditions. T-shaped plan.

Attic floor, formerly used as a school for children working in the mill, has lunette in western gable end facing street. Vaulted construction inside. Wheel pit below.
