It's a shame that Rylands Mill (Pagefield) couldn't have been put to a good use like this has been, they are both beautiful buildings in their own way.

What an interesting building. It looks as if the ground floor nearest corner is an older building, to which the remainder has been grafted on.

Anyone have links to actual history of the building?

My close friend worked there in 1960's, and myself, i worked just across the road from there. I used to get some of my togs made there.
