# 37 The Maltreated and the Malcontents Working in the Great Western Cotton Factory 1838-1914

by Mike Richardson

Mike Richardson explores the history of Bristol’s Great Western Cotton Works in Barton Hill, which opened in 1838. The story of its workforce — mainly low-paid women and children — has never before been told.

From the 1830s to the early twentieth century, Barton Hill workers endured long working hours, high rates of industrial accidents and ill-health from the cotton dust and humidity. Moreover, they were subjected to wage cuts and fines by a series of unrelenting managers.
