Just been to Stott Park Bobbin Mill. It was a lovely visit and we just arrived in time for a guided tour. It is well worth a visit and then you can be really grateful that you didn't live in those times. Health and Safety just didn't exist!!
Brilliant! Make sure you don't miss the tour. The lady giving the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. Explained the whole bobbin making process, even made some bobbins and gave to the kids. Great and unique English Heritage site
