Joshua Bradley



Last week I highlighted the blue plaque commemorating Harry Rutherford.

On the opposite side of the door to Hyde Town Hall is another which commemorates Joshua Bradley (1817-1898) who was born in a humble cottage in Further Lane, Hattersley. After his father died he was sent to work to learn pin winding and ball making with a local thread manufacturer. He rose up to become the manager of the Boston Cotton Mill in Hyde.
