Yorkshire mill exhibition celebrates 400 years history

A new exhibition entitled A Story of a Yorkshire Mill: 400 Years of Cloth Making is celebrating the history of Brooke’s Mill, a former wool textile manufacturer in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield. The firm John Brooke and Sons, which traces its history back to 1542, is believed to be one of the oldest surviving family businesses in England.

The new exhibition will be opened on October 4th 2011. The full story is available in the Yorkshire Post at www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/around-yorkshire/local-stories/family_firm_weaves_story_from_400_years_of_history_1_3810129.
