These long and perfectly proportioned neo-classical ranges for jute spinning and carpet weaving were built in 1851-65 by reconstructing earlier

mills.A giant pediment incorporates the initials G R & A Gilroy and the higher pediment sported a statue of Minerva. Behind this is a gothic cast iron roof, while the rest of the roofs are of wrought-iron ties. They are now Student Residences.
