Fire at Tring Silk Mills

From the Bucks Herald

30th January 1836


Silk Mills


This article not only gives details of the fire but includes additional information - such as the fact that Lady Bridgewater (of Ashridge House) and Mr. Hay had their own fire engines, and that many of the 800 girls who worked there came from Aylesbury and might end up on poor relief at least until the factory was repaired and working again.
