If you ever get the chance to visit we would highly recommend it. The children spent the morning in role with Mr Robson, the mill supervisor being put through their paces to see if they were suitable for a job - 2/6 for a boy. 1/6 for the girls, only 13 hour days with 20 minutes for lunch, and as the mill owner was a Quaker they would get Sundays off to go to church. The whole morning really gave them an idea what life was like for the 80 children employed there.
|Some of the fabulous wool!|
An amazing day - and I shall have to go back to buy more glorious wool!
