Full Description

About 100 yards east of the junction of Francis Road with the … A612, on the northern side, is a three-storey knitters' workshop with long rows of windows, dating from the early part of the nineteenth century. (1)
A row of four adjoining hosiery factories, increasing in age to the E. The earliest are typical of the stage in the industry's development when workshops were becoming factories: still recognizably for framework knitters. The two intermediate buildings clearly show development between early and late C19. (2)
See M17348 for later additions.
