Many people in this area worked as Framework Knitters and past meetings and visits have touched on this topic. We visited the Framework Knitting Museum in Ruddington, heard how the Luddites attacked many of the factories when we were in Loughborough and our Syston talk could have mentioned that their boot and shoe making business developed out of framework knitting.

Cost is £5
