Brettles of Belper: The History of a Derbyshire Hosiery Company

Brettles of Belper traces the history of one of the UK’s oldest textiles companies. It charts the many successes and traumas; and includes associations with royalty, political figures and celebrities.

Written by local authors with previously unseen photographs, the story unfolds over four centuries to the return of the brand to its historic home in Belper, where the company trades successfully today.
