THE COLLECTION

Gathered together over a number of years this special collection represents a cross section of the wide variety of industries that developed in Calderdale. Some of the machines are the only surviving examples of their type in the country. Several machines are in working order and, where possible, will be demonstrated for short periods during opening hours. Every effort has been made to present the machines as they would have been when first used. The collection covers the last 250 years from the industrial revolution.
