    The textile industry in the South-West has deep roots - the mills of the region, in contrast to many parts of the country, can often trace their beginnings beyond the Industrial Revolution to former more ancient buildings and uses. This meticulous study focuses on these historic buildings and their workings to tell the story of woollen, serge, hemp, flax, silk, lace, hosiery and cotton production in the area and to shed light on the early origins of these industries.
