EPIP industrial heritage programme

Digital Textile Heritage Project (Denby Dale)

In 2011 the Industrial Heritage programme awarded a small grant to Denby Dale Parish Council to help them to digitise a rare collection of historical documents collected from two of the most important former textile mills in the parish; Nortonthorpe Mill (in Scissett) and Kenyon Mill (in Denby Dale).

The records include wage books from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, order books and cloth samples, lease agrements, apprenticeship agreements, business cards and sales ledgers. 

The digital records are all free to view. To browse the archives please click here
