14th July 1811: frame-breaking at Sutton-in-Ashfield

Three calendar months after the last reported frame-breaking incidents, more frames were destroyed at Sutton-in-Ashfield (Kirby-in-Ashfield according to one account).1

1. Thomis (1970, p.177). Once more, my research has found no solid references for this other than Thomis' timeline, and therefore it is presumably sourced from Conant & Baker's report to the Home Office of February 1812.
