For over 300 years the small Oxfordshire town of Witney was famous for its blankets, which were exported all over the World. Sadly, the last blanket mill closed in 2002, but the Witney Blanket Story now celebrates everything associated with the industry. Here for the first time all the major sources of information about Witney blankets have been brought together in one place. Discover why the words 'Witney' and 'blanket' were so closely linked, hear songs and workers' stories, look at the blankets and blanket-making equipment, see photographs, documents and videos, and find out where to research further.

The Witney Blanket Project came about in response to the closure in 2002 of Early's, the last working blanket mill in Witney.
