Burnley is a market town in Lancashire, England, with a population of around 73,500. In 1296 a fulling mill was built on the banks of the River Brun, not far from Saint Peter’s Church. Here the woollen cloth was beaten under water to clean and thicken it. This suggests that a considerable amount of cloth was being made in the area by this time. At first weaving was carried out by farmers to eke out a living, but by the 17th century some weavers were working full time either for themselves or an employer known as a clothier.
During the second half of the eighteenth century the manufacture of cotton began to replace that of wool and the introduction of machinery brought about the decline of the domestic system. The invention of spinning machines the spinning-jenny, water-frame and mule led to the building of water-powered factories. The first spinning mills in Burnley were therefore built near rivers. The patenting of the steam engine freed the mills from the reliance on waterpower, and in 1790 steam-power was used in a new cotton factory at the bottom of Sandygate.
Although a power-loom was invented in 1785, it was at first cumbersome and inefficient. Its adoption was slow and weaving continued to be done largely by hand. Indeed, handloom weavers regarded the last decade of the 18th century as a golden age when even an ordinary weaver could earn a good wage. It has been estimated that as late as 1830 there were three times as many cottage weavers as factory weavers. The second half of the 19th Century saw Burnleys development into the most important cotton-weaving town in the world. In 1850 there were some 9,000 looms in the town, all belonging to firms whose main business was spinning. By 1900 Burnley had 79,000 looms, the majority owned by firms engaged solely in weaving. One of the main reasons for this change was the introduction of the new technique of ring spinning in Oldham during the 1880s. This made it cheaper for Burnley manufacturers to buy yarn rather than spin it themselves. By 1886 it was claimed that Burnley was producing a greater length of cotton cloth than any other town in the world.
