Hall i’ th’ Wood Museum History
In the early part of the 16th century Hall i’ th’ Wood Hall was built, it was built as a wooden frame, half timbered building.
In the middle part of the 17th century the hall was given a Jacobean extension made from stone.
Whilst living in this building Samuel Crompton invented his famous spinning wheel which helped revolutionize the United Kingdom’s textile industry.
Up-to the late 19th century Hall i’ th’ Wood Hall was fairly well inhabited, but soon after this the hall fell into a state of disrepair.
Lord Leverhulme thankfully saved the hall giving it needed repairs and updating.
In 1902 the hall became a museum and the building and its surrounding grounds was presented to the people of Bolton in memory of the inventor of the spinning mule Samuel Crompton.
