What a brilliant visit to Queen’s Street Mill, near Burney last Thursday 19th. It’s a working Victorian Mill and we got to see the whole process from spinning the cotton into yearn through to weaving it into cloth. Julie and Vinnie were our excellant guides (thank you ladies) and really gave us an insight into what the Mill was like when it was working. At one time there were over 1,000 looms running at one time which were housed in a weaving shed that was as big as 6 football pitches. Here are some of our amazing pics from the visit;
We will be using the information and pictures from our Queen’s Street Mill visit to feed into the design of our Market Hall Banners. At the moment it looks like we are going for a red, white and blue theme!
This Saturday 29th we will be at The Market Hall in Accrington asking the shoppers their opinion on Accrington. Look out for us in the centre of The Market Hall from 11am to 2pm.
