Hall i' th' Wood Museum

Originally built as a half-timbered hall in the 16th century and owned by wealthy yeomen and merchants, after 1697 the Hall was rented out to various tenants.

It was during this period that a young Samuel Crompton came to live there with his parents. In 1779 he invented his Spinning Mule, which revolutionised the cotton industry.

Members of the public must wear a face covering in all Library and Museum spaces.
