Gloucestershire woollen mills


Hardback with dustwrapper. Very good condition, 254pp., with many b/w photographs, diagrams and maps.

This book is about Gloucestershire woollen mills and the men who worked in them. It is a guide to the geology of the Severn Vale, the Costwolds and the Malverns. So great was the Westcountry’s share in this industry that at one time it eclipsed even Yorkshire in the production of woollen cloth, but it later contracted and declined until only a handful of mills was left.

The counties covered by this book are Somerset, Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire (east if the Severn).
