Great news! A UNESCO world heritage site has now acted on our feedback and is taking corrective measures to present a global version of the history of the industrial revolution! So a project that began based on my own personal corrective of history, shared by some members of the Hindu Samaj, Sheffield, is beginning to have wider outcomes! Delighted! So next time you visit the world heritage sites of Derwent valley mills, you will see the outcome of our efforts in the interpretation boards in Cromford Mill – the first ever water powered spinning mill in the world! For the first time, India, the origin and home to the world’s oldest cotton industry will get a mention in a Cromford Mill interpretation panel!
This follows a promising talk by Michael Ledger, Education officer at Cromford Mill.
