The cotton-spinning mill of A & G Murray is one of the most important surviving steam-powered cotton mills in the world. It was established in the Ancoats area of Manchester during the final years of the 18th century, and was amongst the first cotton mills ever to have been designed specifically to house steam-powered spinning mules, providing a new and powerful dimension to factory-based textile manufacture. This book details the comprehensive survey of the mill and the remarkable, but little studied, industrial townscape of Ancoats, and is presented for both specialists and general readers.
