The market town of Glossop is situated in Derbyshire and lies on the Glossop Brook, some 24 km east of Manchester and 39 km west of Sheffield. Being so close to the Peak District National Park means that Glossop sees its fair share of tourism.
The town’s industrial heritage dates back to the days of rich mill owners and Greater Manchester’s textile industry. Glossop was a mill town and its people worked mainly in the cotton industry. In 1788 the Glossop area boasted some 17 mills. In the early 19th century the town was home to very large calico mills, and in the latter part of that century Glossop’s textile industry had expanded to such an extent that the mills housed 892,000 spindles and 13,571 looms. The majority of mills were in the ownership of just six families. Two cotton mills of those days are still standing today. Most of these large cotton mills or factories had the capacity to employ as many as 1,000 people.
Glossop has good transport links with Greater Manchester, making it possible to commute to the bigger cities, where many of Glossop’s residents work today. In the days of cotton spinning, workers would have enjoyed very few rights, certainly none to compensation. A worker today suffering from deafness brought on by incessant noise produced by looms would be able to make an injury claim in Glossop.
