Dursley & Cam Society

Tue, 09 May 2017 19:30

The May meeting of the Dursley & Cam Society will take place in the Town Hall, Dursley at 7-30 p.m. on Tuesday, 9th May. The speaker will be the local historian Brian Jowett who will give an illustrated presentation entitled "Pinning up the World". The entry fee, which includes light refreshments, is £2 for members and £3 for non-members.

Background information:

Brian Jowett is probably the last pin making specialist in the UK having spent 25 years in the pin making industry starting as a sweeper and ending as the Managing Director.

He will be describing the ancient history of pin making, which was used as early as 1623 by Parish Workhouses to off-set the substantial cost to the Parish. He will follow this by describing the impact of the first mechanisation of pin making in the world at Lightpill Mill, Stroud. This led to the manufacture of hairpins which spread through the Stroud valleys and on to Dursley.

He will finish by describing the processes, mills, owners and their families making pins in Dursley between 1853 and 1902
