The mill was built in 1894 by the Queen Street Mill Manufacturing Company for weaving plain cotton fabric. At its peak the weaving shed housed 1,000 Lancashire looms all powered by a single 500 hp steam engine. Although the mill closed in 1982 uniquely as a museum it is still powered by steam today.
