‘A Dreadful Accident’ Memorial Film

On 13 October 2021, we gathered together to present historical research into the mill workers who died in the 1824 collapse, and to discuss artistic commissions that would emerge from the project. This short film commemorates this memorial and sharing event.

The words you will hear are taken from a contemporary report in The Technical Repository (pp. 319–25 ed. T. Gill, 1824)
