13th December 1812: Stocking frame broken in New Radford

Whilst the attacks by Nottinghamshire Luddites were nowhere near on the same scale as 12 months previously, they were continuing since being revived in November. On Sunday 13th December 1812, a stocking frame was broken in New Radford by Luddites after working for less than the agreed prices.

Bare details of this incident is mentioned by Thomis (1970, p.181) in his timeline, although he does not provide a reference.
