Excellent approach to cotton textile history. Nov 02, 2010
When I first went to Helmshore, a substantial partof the museum was still commercially active. A colleague discovered that htey were still using mules there and obtained permission for us to take in a party of students. This seemed a real privilege.

I don't recognise which mill was which by name but the one that was already a museum was a past fulling mill, the principal feature of which was a massive mechanical hammer.

I see from the website that there are now far more machines and that it is possible to get a good insight into textile history there. If I can't tempt anybody else to go, at least I can go again myself - and I shall!
