Memories of Newsome Mill from Liz Cox

Liz says:

My Grandmother (Eveline Sayles) worked at the Newsome Mill, but lived in Almondbury.

As my parents lived in St John’s Avenue, not far from Ruth Street, my sister and I used to go to the Mill after school and peer through the window at my Nanna. It always looked a hive of activity.

I remember my Nanna once allowing us to come inside and say hello to the other ladies. I remember seeing ‘heel’ marks on the wooden boards next to the looms, from the ladies high heel shoes.

Sadly we left Newsome in 1973, but I still remain very keen on learning more about the history and the workers of the mill.
