http://www.valendale.co.uk/mills.html has a little information on the TOWN family who owned the rag mill, but I haven't found anything about the workers.

Did you mean individual workers?  Or general working conditions?

Hello

It was more about the people who worked there and where they came from. Did the towns family still own the turkey mill in 1850.

Are there any rates, poll books for the keighly area etc 1845 - 1850
