The Weaver’s Factory, seen from behind. This former home of the artist, textile designer and educator Joan Charnley is part of a row built in the first decade of the 19th century. While its front elevation gives the appearance of an elegant Georgian town house, the rear aspect is made in the traditional style of Saddleworth weavers’ cottages. The long rows of mullioned windows provided maximum daylight for the hand-looms on the upper floors. These were accessed by taking-in doors, most of which were blocked up long ago and the staircases removed.
