Quarry BankSeptember 6 in the United Kingdom
Last day of travel.
Leaving for Berlin tomorrow which means that we have to actually pack a suitcase.
It seems impossible that what we brought with us has reproduced as it has.
The cleaning of the car was quite cathartic although it was sad to see those apples we bought 4 weeks ago finally hit the bin.
Bernadette ‘s confident declaration that we’ll eat them today was wearing a bit thin.
Ah well, can always leave some socks.
Last site is Quarry Bank a site from the early Industrial Revolution with a textile mill and village.
Has an apprentice house where 90 childrn under the age of 16 used to live.
Work 6 days a week 630 to 700, church on Sunday morning (4 mile walk), school Sunday afternoon. Non paid just board and lodging. The mill was considered quite advanced as there was no corporal punishment!!!!
Light rain, what a place in winter. As it changed over years it also incorporated, steam and hydro to power the place. it only closed in 1956 but we assume (hope) thr kids had gone by then.
Quite different and a good finish even in the rain.Read more
