Posted on 28/09/2016 by


Chorley Mills is a lottery funded oral history project which is currently recording memories of workers in Lancashire’s now defunct cotton spinning and weaving industry. Based in town of Chorley Lancashire, the project is well under way and has gathered many interviews, photographs and documents. Several interviews and other archive material are already accessible on the project web site with more to come.

The project team include volunteer interviewers. Editing of interviews, digitisation of archive material and web site admin are being conducted by Jason Hurley of Crumplezone

Education resource packs are also being prepared by Education Consultant Maria Smith and will be available for schools to download from the web site.
