Westwood Mill is a Grade II listed building and is privately owned by Michael Wilson Restorations. Permission was given in October 2005 for it to be redeveloped in a similar scheme to the nearby Titanic Mills although today it still remains derelict and ruined.
The earliest part of the building was a scribbling mill, facing the mill pond (right), built in 1798 while the canal itself was being built. The mill was used in the production of textiles, with clothier John Shaw leasing the mill in 1824.
This listed building is believed to be the earliest surviving woolen mill in the Colne Valley and shows different phases of construction over a long period. It was originally powered by water from the adjacent mill pond, the waterwheel that powered the mill was replaced in 1920 by an 85hp water turbine manufactured by William Gunther and Sons, Oldham.
