25th December 1811: Frame-breaking in the Nottinghamshire villages

On the evening of Wednesday 25th December, at least one stocking frame was broken at Carlton, 3 at Sneinton and 2 in the town of Nottingham itself (North Street according to Conant & Baker).

As reported in the Nottingham Review of 27th December 1811, and Conant & Baker's report at HO 42/119. The 3rd January 1812 edition of the Review retracted the claims about Sneinton.
