In the mid seventeenth century a grand stone exstension in the jacobean style was added. the house was home to Samuel Crompton who invented the Spinning Mule while living here in 1779. The Spinning Mule was capable of spinning very fine cotton thread and it had a massive impact on the textile industry.
