  • location: off Digley Road, Austonley
  • status: no longer exists
  • category: woollen mill

The mill was built circa 1800 — likely by Christopher Green (c.1750-1830) of Bank Top, Austonley — but suffered a partial collapse in November 1802, instantly killing three poeple.[1]

At the time of the Holmfirth Flood of 1852, the mill was occupied by John Roebuck.

The building was marked as "disused" on the 1906 map and demolished prior to the First World War.
