Long Description:
Woodhouse Mill was built as a steam powered cotton-spinning mill in 1832. The engine house and boiler house were detached from the main building, as was the chimney.

The mill closed around 1930 and was left derelict for many years. Recently a businessman purchased it and has restored it faithfully to its former glory on the outside of the building, whilst converting the interior into residential apartments. The chimney has been conserved.
