Our heritage dates back circa 300 years. The first evidence of needle making in its more conventional form was to be found in various monasteries and ecclesiastical centres throughout the county. Bordesley Abbey (pictured left), founded in 1156, about a mile north of Redditch, was probably the earliest foothold of our industry in the Redditch area.
When the monasteries were dissolved in 1538 by King Henry VIII it is presumed that most of the monks continued to ply their craft in the Redditch neighbourhood.
Meanwhile, needle making was also becoming established in London. Old maps show Needlers Lane and Threadneedle Street and workshops were set up on London Bridge.
In 1656 a charter of incorporation was granted to the trade by Oliver Cromwell and confirmed eight years later by
After the Great Fire of London in 1666 many of the craftsmen dispersed and a number of them settled in Long Crendon in Buckinghamshire, where they became renowned for making sail needles, pack needles, upholstery needles and surgeon’s needles. Gradually they migrated to Redditch making needle manufacture its staple industry.
