Saving Newsome Mills (part one): Tenterhooks

There were lots of grand textile mills in the North of England, generally built to make woollen cloth in Yorkshire, and cotton in Lancashire (because the damp air West of the Pennines made it a bit easier to work with cotton).

Diane Sims leaves us on tenterhooks in the first part of her story about a woollen mill in Newsome that was built in the early 19th century and under threat of demolition 200 years later.

Weekly Blog Club was set up in early January 2012 to encourage people to blog regularly, and especially to encourage those working in and with the public sector, charities and voluntary organisations in the UK to find their own 'voice' through writing.
