Life of Mine - Toxic Federation

We've been to Arkwright's Mill today... I was most interested of course... as the mill is  Sir Richard Arkwright's first and most important cotton mill, at which he pioneered the development of his water frame spinning machine and revolutionised the manufacture of cloth, thereby laying one of the cornerstones of the Industrial Revolution.

Jenny and in particular Pearl didn't blink an eye! Why are us chaps more interested in this stuff than the girls?

I hope you are ALL going to be totally fascinated if you are running this weekend as the start is just a stones throw away at the start of the canal where we saw a MASSIVE Pike just lurking in the shallows of the still water. Proper big it was too.

You'd need a lot of chips to go with him, I can assure you...

More tomorrow as we are back there again and we'll see if he's still there.
