Heritage Open Days - Mill Life

Come and get a taste of what life was like in 1826 when the power loom riots ripped through the quiet and quaint village of Helmshore.
Hear about the two worlds colliding - the millowners introducing the new power looms and the handloom weavers who feared this would steal their livelihoods - as well as the people caught in the middle of it all.
Find out more about what life was like for the workers and what they would have eaten - including sampling some of the food yourselves!
