Steps Mill – an early depiction

This is perhaps the earliest depiction of a woollen mill in the Huddersfield area.  Painted by Thomas Beaumont of Steps in 1829 it returned to the area in 2012. The complex of buildings is also well known as the location of Honley’s first Sunday School in the 1790s.
