From 'The Blanket Mills of Witney': Witney Mill, belonging to the Early family, stands alongside the old A40 road once the main route between London and Gloucester. The red-brick chimney still towers above the softer Cotswold stone buildings of the mill itself. The angular block to the left of the picture is dated 1934, while the gabled wing on the extreme right dates form 1905; the former house in the centre is probably of circa 1750.

It was retained by Crosville until 1946 and saw further service with other operators for about another ten years. AEC
