19th June 1980: Manor Mill was owned by James Ives&Co Ltd.
This 4 storey building was the oldest part of the mill.
A loading bay with hoist can be seen which remained in use until the mill closed and was demolished in 1980.
The buttress to the right of the loading bay housed a circular stone staircase.

19th June 1980: Undated
The shop on the left was once the caretakers house.
When the mill was powered by steam the engine was housed in the building behind the archway, the engine was nick-named "Kate".
This view is at the junction of Kirk Lane in the foreground and Haworth Lane going off to the right.
 
May 1980: Amongst the remaining parts of the mill buildings new construction appears to be taking place.

The top Photo of the Mill Gates is very familiar to me as I lived opposite them in Manor Square for 21 Years.

The large window across the yard from the entrance looked into the engine room. I used to set off for school (AGS) five minutes early so I could watch the engine working.

Loved Manor Mill I used to go there on a Saturday morning they sold amazingly cheap remnants of cloth and
I would go home and run up a mini skirt in the 60s on my sewing machine and wear to the the Saturday night dance at the Town Hall or Rawdon Drill Hall! Happy Days
