RIEVAULX COTTAGE

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  BECK FOOT MILL, BECKFOOT MILL
DESCRIPTION + /

An early 19th century textile mill. At the time of the survey on 18th April 1985 the site consisted of three principal buildings: a two-storey and 3x7 bay spinning mill of the early 19th century, an attached wheelhouse of the early 19th century and a two-storey and 4x3 bay warehouse of the mid to late 19th century. All buildings were constructed of coursed stone and covered by stone slate. The site was powered by water. Beckfoot Mill is situated along Harden beck and on historic Ordnance Survey maps a large mill pond is depicted to the west of the mill. On modern maps of 2007 the mill pond had been filled in. The mill was initially used for the manufacture of silks and later for wadding and felt. In circa 1985 the mill was converted into six dwellings. A mill owner's or manager's house is associated with the mill (see HOB UID 944235). Grade II listed.
