Dixon's Chimney and Shaddon Mill, Junction Street

  • Description

    "Both are grade II* listed buildings. - http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/details/default.aspx?id=386773 The mill was built by Peter Dixon (architect Richard Tattersall) in 1835-6. At the time the largest cotton mill in England, and the chimney was the tallest in the land. Originally over 300ft (92m) high, it was shortened in 1950 to its current height (270-290ft, depending which source you read). After Dixon and Sons went bankrupt in 1872 the mill was used for woollen production, and by the later 20th century the floors were in multiple use. Over the last couple of years much of the mill has been converted to luxury flats." Photo by Rose and Trev Clough, 2007.
