Arthur Dawson & Sons, Ltd., were cotton manufacturers based at Fern Mill on Leeds Road in the 1890s, and later at Aspley Mills, St. Andrew's Road.

The firm was established by Arthur Dawson (1851-1926)[1] of Thorn Dene, 37 Bath Street, and his sons Frank Arthur Dawson and Henry Dawson.

An invoice from 1891 named them as a fancy cotton manufacturer and offered:

  • nopped yarns in all colours

The company went into liquidation in November 1949.[2]
