Hall i’ th’ Wood was originally built as a half-timbered hall in the 16th century and was owned by wealthy yeomen and merchants. After 1697 the Hall was rented out to various tenants.
It was during this period that a young Samuel Crompton came to live there with his parents. In 1779 he invented his Spinning Mule, which revolutionised the cotton industry.
