Nantwich Tanneries – Digital Download
There have been tanneries in Nantwich since the 15th century, and it was not until 1972 that the last one closed. This fascinating publication is written by Andrew Lamberton and Glynn Skerratt. It details (in chronological order) the five different tanneries that Nantwich has had. It describes the different activities that took place, and is illustrated with fascinating old maps and pictures of work inside the tanneries. Thankfully the smells have not been recreated. This a highly recommended insight into a once very important industry in Nantwich.
