Macclesfield and Culture

Had a fantastic day in Macclesfield with Lesley. In particular the tour of Paradise Mill - one of the silk museums. Absolute must if you are in this neck of the woods.

Look at this early comptometer

A silk stocking maker - early onset "knitting nancy" or french knitter - I remember producing those coils as a kid.

I have no chance of catching up with this blog - the lack of a regularly reliable signal defeats me
