In 1804 following the end of the partnership with John Marshall of Leeds, Thomas and Benjamin Benyon, together with Charles Bage built a new mill at Castlefields, Shrewsbury about 800 yards from the Ditherington Mill and between the River Severn and the Shrewsbury Canal. Once again Bage designed the building. It was a five-storey, iron-framed construction with a floor area of 3,446 square metres and included two steam engines to power machines to produce linen thread.« Previous in this sectionNext in this section »
