I’ve lived 70 years in the same village, a village that was developed from the woollen trade from weaving in homes to mills being the great employer.

The village still has the buildings now instead of spinning and weaving we have homes and small industrial units.

The mill in the centre houses a lot of arts. An art gallery in the old cloth warehouse. Artists studios, resturants, bars, one with its own onsite brewery. An entertainment space that showcases comedy and music.

Workshops in various arts, including weaving on old wooden looms.

Myself, l’ve stitched all my life from practical to earning and now pure pleasure.
