Rear view of Imperial Mill
Built in the 1890s using money raised by selling shares used. Was equipped with a new type of spinning machine - the ring frame - which had been developed in America, and could be worked with less skilled operatives than the mules. The frames also had the double advantage of occupying less space and giving increased output. It started production in 1901
