How England Was Made | Episode 4: Stott Park Bobbin Mill

  • Description

    In the fourth and final episode of our series, How England Was Made, presenter Rob Bell ventures to the Lake District to visit a mill that played a surprisingly key role in England’s textile industry in the 19th Century. Nestled on the shores of Lake Windermere in Cumbria, Stott Park Bobbin Mill produced millions of wooden bobbins vital to the Lancashire spinning and weaving industries. Join Rob and English Heritage Senior Curator Kevin Booth as they explore the role of the humble bobbin and the story behind the only working bobbin mill left in the Lake District today.
