Chatham Mill, Chester Street, Manchester
Chatham Mill, Chester Street, Manchester
A former cotton mill dating from 1820. On the left is a truncated chimney. Grade II listed.
One 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, although I think this one is an exception.
