Woven in Kidderminster by Melvyn Thompson
Woven in Kidderminster is the illustrated history of the carpet industry in the Kidderminster area that includes information on Stourport, Bridgenorth and Bewdley from the period 1735 to 2000.
“Having started with the history of the tramway in Kidderminster, Melvyn Thompson now concentrates on the Carpet Industry. He writes with an engaging style that is sure to hold the attention of his readers. At all times the underlying passion which he holds for his subject shows through the narrative.
This is a book that was surely waiting to be written, and is destined to become the definitive work on the subject of Kidderminster’s internationally renowned carpet industry.” – Roger Mathews, retired, formerly Jellymans and Carpets of Worth.
