Originally a Textile Mill. According to Pevsner, once a Dyeworks which drew water from Wood Brook and commenced business in 1825. Other sources indicate that Thomas Clarke?s Dyeworks fronted Devonshire Square and were demolished in the 1960s when the NW side of Devonshire Square was redeveloped. Now retail units and offices. C19, probably later than 1825 but with many insensitive and badly executed interventions. Red brick with shallow brick arched openings. Slate pitched roofs. 4 storeys. Replacement pvcu windows and painted GF storey seriously detract from overall appearance.
