Barry, committee member and former Chair of the badger group, relates his view of the role of cotton in the Industrial Revolution.
A former textile technologist, he will talk about not only the engineers but also the mill owners and builders who developed a philosophy of mass production right here, on our own doorstep.
The technology, its creativity and its ingenuity will be examined. And the question will be asked – what happened to this once huge, flourishing industry that gave so much to Britain and the world?
7.30pm at Gothic Warehouse Cromford Wharf, Mill Lane, Cromford DE4 3RQ
