Pedlars and buttons

The little known story of how the entrepreneurs of Hollinsclough created a centre of button manufacturing and distribution across the country in the 1700s.  In 70 years the population multiplied at least fivefold as families moved in and houses were built.   Times of change and excitement in a tiny little hamlet.

Victoria Rowe 

‘A scientist by training but motivated to discover more about where I live by several people in Hollinsclough who had carried out local history research.  I got ‘the bug’ and became fascinated about the lives and times of the folk who once lived here’.
