A Walk Around Copley – Sunday 9th June 2024, 2pm

Built by the Akroyd family in the mid-19th century, Copley village not only provided a steady supply of labour for the Akroyd’s mill, but was a social enterprise through which Akroyd hoped to improve the lives of his employees. Take a walk around this picturesque village, see Akroyd’s vision for a better society, and learn how it all worked out.
