A Shorter History of the Hall

WITNEY BLANKET HALL was built in 1721 by the Company of Blanket Makers. For over 120 years, every Blanket woven in the town came to the Hall to be weighed & measured, and upstairs in the Great Room the Company set the Rules for the Trade.

After 1845 the New Mills established their own measuring, and the redundant Blanket Hall became variously a Brewery, Lemonade Factory, Engineering Shop, Office of births marriages & deaths, Dancing School, & latterly, a distinctive gentleman’s House.

During most of its History, the Hall was also where many of the town’s Public Meetings took place, the death of Kings solemnly commemorated, & the birth of Princes celebrated with great Feasts. In the 18th century, the Hall housed the town’s Fire Pump.

The Blanket Hall has re-opened its doors on the High Street to reveal this illustrious Past, & to offer our woollen blankets and throws, fine coffee, excellent pies and Assemblies, both commercial and cultural.

Visitor, you are Welcome.
