On February 25 1816, saw on of the last Luddite disturbances near Huddersfield in the West Riding. A cloth-dresser’s home and shop was attacked, windows were damaged, and shearing frames destroyed. Damages were estimated at £16, 17 shillings sixpence for shearing frames and hand shears, and £25, 17 shillings sixpence for broken windows. The disturbance was slight compared to the more numerous and violent actions of four years before. For more information, see the excellent blog Luddite Bicentenary.
