Textile Heritage Project

This short video edited from that originally made for the Arqueotex Textile Heritage Project (1997 – 9) gives an introduction to the hosiery and textile industry of Hinckley which, from its earliest days as a cottage industry to the factory era, was once the town`s main industry and source of employment. Here you will see various Hinckley factories, now largely disappeared, showing the variety of machines and processes used.
