History of the Tring Silk Mill

Talk at the Pitstone & Ivinghoe Museum Society.  Held in the meeting room at Pitstone Green Museum at 8pm on 27-2-14.

Members and non-members welcome.

Wendy Austin, our speaker, has always been interested in Tring, having been born and brought up there, as were both her parents and three of her grandparents.  The Silk Mill has a varied history, being build in 1823, and after closing as a mill in 1898, being put to different uses.  The talk embraces aspects of the local, industrial and social history, from the beginnings in 1823 to the present day.
