Inside the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. It's a great place to spend a good few hours and it's free, although you can make a donation to help keep this Manchester gem going. This is an example of the machines that were in the cotton mills part of the Manchester heritage. There were many Mills Ltd in Manchester and the north of England. My Grandma worked in one and I remember her telling me that they had some German Soldiers that were held captive there in the second world war. One thing I regret is finding out more stories like this from my Grandma and Grandad before they passed away so I could have passed these stories onto our generation.
