Shop at Spinner's End Farm

Interesting bit of history....

I found this notice for sale on ebay, and it led me to ponder what a dreadful existence it must have been spinning for mills. Nothing at all recreational about it and probably not the soul inspiring activity I find it to be done without (much) pressure. Interestingly, the fine for washing oneself is higher than missing a day of work! It doesn't sound like a cheery working environment working for Will Cobbett.

  1. Is this not a modern spoof? No sign of age on it!
