Death  &


in Ramsbottom mills

As always it is amazing how much fascinating information is available.

Some of the accidents which happened were really horrific and large fires were devastating.

What happened to Nuttall old mill, why was Christie’s hospital opened, where was Ramsbottom’s original  fire station, how recently, and why, did people in spinning rooms work in bare feet ?.

To find out all this and more, come along to the exhibition
