Brookbottom Mill "A sketch plan dated 1873 (built 1876) shows that there was a water-wheel house, engine house, and a gas-house and gasometer. There was a large warehouse, offices and of course a weaving shed. There was even an extension over the river planned. The main stone building now flats, accommodated ring spinning, doubling, and cotton carding processes". From KH The River Irwell
