Stanley:From Arkwright Village to Commuter Suburb 1784-2015 - SECOND REVISED EDITION by ANTHONY COOKE


Product Description


Stanley:From Arkwright Village to Commuter Suburb 1784-2015:

Situated on an exceptional site on the River Tay, Stanley Mills in Perthshire, together with its nearby village, is of outstanding historical importance, with the Bell Mill probably the finest surviving Arkwright cotton mill anywhere in the world. Its conservation by Historic Scotland and the Phoenix Trust, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is a fitting recognition of its international importance.

This book traces the history of the cotton mills at Stanley and their links with historically important figures such as Richard Arkwright, David Dale and Robert Owen of New Lanark. It also examines Stanley’s links with the cotton industry in the West of Scotland, in Lancashire and with the Dundee jute industry. Cotton was a global industry and Stanley Mills exported their products as far afield as India, North and South America, South Africa and Australia. This second edition has been considerably rewritten and expanded to take account of new research and new discoveries since it was first published in 2003.
