Stanhill Heritage Trail Launched

The Mayor, Cllr Tim O’Kane and MP for Hyndburn, Graham Jones, launched Stanhill’s new heritage trail today.

Richard Hooper of Stanhill Residents led the proceedings which included a talk about James Hargreaves and the Spinning Jenny, a slideshow, some short speeches and a close look at the specially made replica of the Spinning Jenny, the machine which ‘changed the world’.

We all then had refreshments and time to chat.

Stanhill heritage trail runs through the northern part of St.Oswald’s parish. It can be seen here…
