BONSALL FRAMEWORK KNITTERS WORKSHOP
Bonsall framework knitters workshop

Framework knitters workshop in Bonsall Dale dated 1737

The knitting frames developed by William Lee were too expensive for individual knitters to afford thus entrepreneurs hired out the frames to homes based knitters or ‘stockingers’.. They also provided raw materials and paid the stockingers to deliver finished products to the warehouses.

Bonsall had 143 cotton frames operating in 1844.
