Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ainsworth Mill, Breightmet is a mercerising mill near Breightmet, Bolton, Greater Manchester. It was bought by the Lancashire Cotton Corporation in the 1940s as an attempt to develop a cotton finishing presence. Breightmet is a small town 3 km to the east on Bolton town centre and 6 km west of Bury. The Ainsworth estate though physically attached to Breightment is for administrative purposes in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury. The early name Bolton le Moors described the position of the town amid the low hills on the edge of the West Pennine Moors south east of Rivington Pike (456 m). Breightmet lies on relatively flat land on west of the clough or steep-banked valley through which the Bradshaw Brook flows in a southerly direction towards the River Tonge and then the River Irwell.show more
