History of Thwaites Mill Leeds

The first known mill on the site was a fulling mill built-in 1641, as part of the local industry of manufacturing woollen cloth. In 1823–25 the Aire and Calder Navigation company acquired the mill and redeveloped the site. Two new large waterwheels were built, and the area comprised the mill building, the manager's house, stables, workshop, warehouse and workers' cottages. The cottages were demolished in 1968, but the other buildings remain intact today.

The mill was used for a range of purposes. The firm of W and E Joy used it to crush seeds for lubricating and lighting oil; imported woods were destroyed for the dyeing industry. The Horn family, who took over the mill in 1872, used it to crush flint and China stone for the pottery industry and to grind chalk to make "whiting" for sectors ranging from pharmaceuticals to whitewash, then barytes for the paint industry, and until 1975 for the production of putty.

Set on an island between the River Aire and the Aire and Calder Navigation, the mill was as self-sufficient as its owners could make it: there were workshops, orchards, arable land and pasture, and the mill did not get an electricity supply until 1986, instead of generating their power from the two water wheels and a Marshall engine which was purchased to control the Raymond Mill in the 1930s.
