The Ivy Mill History
Ivy Business Centre operates from the historical building Ivy Mill in a town called Failsworth and is steeped in history. Failsworth is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, in Greater Manchester, England. It is 3.7 miles (6.0 km) east-northeast of Manchester city centre and 2.9 miles (4.7 km) south-southwest of Oldham. Failsworth lies within the orbital M60 motorway, which skirts Failsworth’s eastern boundary.
Historically a part of Lancashire, until the 19th century Failsworth was a small agricultural township linked, ecclesiastically, with the parish of Manchester. Farming was the main industry of this rural area, with locals supplementing their incomes by hand-loom weaving in the domestic system. Before the War Manchester was the powerhouse of the industrial Revolution, becoming the largest cotton
spinning city in the world and the introduction of textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution facilitated a process of unplanned urbanisation in the area, giving rise to Failsworth as a mill town, marked architecturally by several large redbrick cotton mills and IVY MILL was one of them Failsworth’s major landmark is the Failsworth Pole—a maypole which occupies the site of several former political poles.
The Ivy Mill itself housed 75 000 spindlers used regularly on a daily basis, to produce 800 000 yards of the cotton at its peak. Production of the cotton ceased in 1939 in response to WWII in order to produce the famous Lancaster Bomber which bought King George to Visit Ivy Mill.
