I have three diaries from 1915/16/17 which belonged to an M R Illingworth of Springwell House, Ossett. They are quite unremarkable (ie every Monday was wash day!). Remarkably they were rescued from a dustbin in Bridlington by my brother many many years ago and I acquired them from him. Be interested to know if anybody from the family is still around and whether Springwell House is still standing.

A very interesting and detailed website on the development and growth of Ossett. I was wondering whether there is an Ossett town trail in existence which could be used by school children about the development of the town through the Industrial Revolution period.

A very interesting read indeed. In regards to the tunnel which comes out opposite Mill Bank lock, as a child myself and friends regularly went up and down it, climbing out of it onto the canal bank. The tunnel is totally stone lined with sandstone flags for its floor.

I just wanted to say thank you for the website, I am a 3rd year student at the University of Glasgow and found this site both interesting and useful for my research into refugee assimilation into Britain. ( I used the image of Armand Krahe for my essay)
Also from Yorkshire, I probably spent longer than I should looking through the many other sources!

Thank you for the great website and all your hard work. My Grandfather came to the states around the turn of the century as a child. I have been researching many stories he told me . One was about his Grandfather owning a mill and going bankrupt. Your site confirmed the story, the Perseverance Mill. I'm still digging to find more and your site really helps!
Thanks again
