Marsden, A Journey Through Time

From flint arrowheads to fine woollens and beyond

The aim of this book is to trace Marsden’s history, from the available evidence, and to identify how and why changes took place. We have concentrated on tracing the social and industrial history of three areas; the village centre, the New Mills site and the Wessenden/Carrs Road area.

When combined, these three parts of the village illustrate the pattern of change that transformed Marsden from a remote rural settlement to an important industrial ‘town‘ producing quality woollen cloth which was acknowledged worldwide.
