Loom, Queen St. Mill, Briercliffe
Briercliffe
A weaving loom at Queen Street Mill.

The looms form the final part in the cotton weaving process. Here, the warp yarn, contained on a beam, has the weft passed through it by the shuttle. This creates the cloth. The machines are driven by the mill power plant and are connected to it via leather bands that attach to the driving mechanism that runs above the shop floor.
