Marsland's and Chorlton Old Mills, Cambridge Street, Manchester
Marsland's and Chorlton Old Mills, Cambridge Street, Manchester
Marsland's is the nearer, and was used for cotton spinning. Built 1795 and rebuilt 1813. Grade II listed.
The more monumental Chorlton is roughly contemporary, built for Robert Owen in 1795, and extended in 1803 (out of shot). Owen sold it before moving to New Lanark. Grade II listed.
The far chimney belongs to this: SJ8397 : Chorlton New Mill, Cambridge Street, Manchester.
Part of a good cluster of former mills a little way west of Oxford Road and south of Whitworth Street. Pevsner comments that they "include important examples of early C19 fireproof construction" and several of them produced Macintosh's patented waterproof fabric.
Most have been converted to flats.
