Riot and rebellion – The Power Loom Riots

Lancaster Judges Lodgings Museum

In 1826 a group of 1000 angry handloom weavers began attacking the looms and mills of East Lancashire. Unemployment, poverty and bad harvest had led to despair and over 1100 looms were attached in four days. So what was the official response to the Power Loom Riots? What happened to those tried for the riots at Lancaster? And how guilty were they? Dr Colin Penny shares the story of the Power Loom Riots.

Cost £5.00 including entrance to the museum and refreshments.
