The decision was forced by the need to replace the steam engine, an expense that could not be justified if the building were to remain a room and power mill.
The directors had other business interest in Burnley and were aware of the market. All the assets were passed to the Harle Syke Mill Company who continued to provide 'room and power facilities' to the two remaining tenants. The new company replaced the steam engine, built a new weaving shed stocked it with looms and started to manufacture cloth again after a break of forty years.
The first war had little effect on weaving, and the peace dividend caused a boom and inflation. The profits were transferred to the shareholders in the form of bonus shares. In the economy crashed and the company entered a twenty-year period of austerity. Cotton Control in World War 2 forced cotton companies to reduce its capacity, in Harle Syke Mill had only looms running and Queen Street Manufacturing Company moved into the bottom shop. Harle Syke Mill Company closed the bottom shed that year. Harle Syke Mill closed in September when the shareholders agreed to join the Conservative government's Cotton Industry Reorganisation Scheme whereby compensation was given for each loom destroyed.
The firm wove out and smashed the looms the workforce was made redundant. A Manchester firm Manifold Textiles moved into Siberia trading as Finsley View Manufacturing Company, took on the workers and continued in production until The weaving sheds of both the building and the shed have been modified, some parts have been demolished to provide parking, but were still occupied in In planning permission was given to convert the Burnley Road warehouse into 12 residential apartments, a clinic and nursery. Some of the weaving shed would be cleared and houses built.
When yarn enters a weaving mill, the warp is usually already on a beam and the weft is on different size cops and cheeses. The weft has to be wound onto pirns to fit in the shuttles suitable for installed looms.
The threads pass through the size to stiffen them and reduce friction. The size is a mixture of flour soft soap and tallow. The ends are dried over steam-heated cylinders and wound onto the final beam, the weavers beam. The weavers beam is now placed on the Drawing-in frame. Here each end is passed through the healds, and then through a reed.
This job was done by a reacher-in and a loomer. The reacher-in, who would be young and usually a boy, passed each end in order through to the loomer. Alternatively, if the loom had already run that cloth, a short length of the previous warp thread could be left on the healds and reed, and a Barber Colman knotter ties the old ends to the new. This process took 20 minutes, considerably faster than starting afresh.
Spare healds and reeds are stored above head height for that purpose. The loomed weavers beam is taken into the weaving shed, where it gaited to the loom by a tackler. One weaver would tenter 6, or 8 Lancashire Looms, which would be kept working by a tackler. This shed is known as top shed or Siberia due to it starting up before the steam heating pipes were working. A new warehouse was built at right angles to the existing one fronting Burnley Road. It uses Corliss valves. They were delivered by April Howard and Bullough provided two tapes tape sizing machines and eight beaming frames.
There were seven tacklers and then beamers and loomers. John Taylor was a director and shareholder but also an employee as were many others and it was this that made the 'Harle Syke model' unique.
