Visit to Heathcoat Fabrics (IA Section)

Thu. 9 May 2019 at 2:00 pm

This visit to Heathcoat Fabrics Limited in Tiverton (EX16 5LL) provides a rare opportunity to see inside the textile mill that was founded in Tiverton by John Heathcote in 1816 in order to escape the attacks of Luddites on his mills in Loughborough.

His Devon mill became a leader in the machine production of fine lace and the business continues today supplying high-tech fabrics to the aerospace industry.


Numbers are limited for this visit so that registration, on a first-come-first-served basis, is required.
