Home of the Lancashire Textile Project 2013.
A new revision of the project, originally devised from interviews taken in the late 1970's from workers within the weaving and spinning industries.
A unique archive of transcribed interviews with operatives from the industry. Nearly 200 45 minute audio tapes have been transcribed with over 850 images now embedded in the texts. Interviews were conducted with the owners and operatives from Bancroft Mill in Barnoldswick and Spring Vale Spinning Mill in Haslingden.
The only record of it's kind from an industry now part of our industrial heritage.
The project can be viewed fully online and all content is available to download from the site for further research.
