Almondbury Mechanics' Institute

There's not much to see here at the moment but we hope to add more details about this topic at a later date :-)

The Almondbury Mechanics' Institute was formed in September 1843. By April 1844, the institute had "upwards of seventy members" and lessons in reading, writing, grammar and arithmetic were being taught.[1]

The following advert was place in the local press at the start of 1846:[2]

WANTED, at the Almondbury Mechanics' Institution, an intelligent, active, and strictly moral Man and his Wife, to TEACH A DAY SCHOOL and superintend the Classes three nights a week. Salary £60 per Annum, with Dwelling and Coals free.
