A steep old town once famous as the country's most important centre for the manufacture of broad- cloth. It still supplies most of the world's requirements for billiard-table cloth and has a flourishing dye trade.



Its scarlet dyes are world renowned. Some of the 18th-century woollen mills witness to this important past. Piano manufacture is now included in the activities here.
