Wool and Worsit: A History of Textiles in the Holme Valley was written by Michael Day and published in 2013 by Laverock Publishing of Huddersfield.

An in-depth and extremely well-researched study of the history of textile production in the Holme Valley and of the many mills in the area. In his review, local historian Alan Brooke wrote:[1]

This book must, with no doubt, be the definitive work on the textile industry in the Holme Valley. However, it is not merely of local interest, since by focusing in detail on this particular area it also contributes to our understanding of the Yorkshire textile industry as a whole. It is comprehensive in detail and monumental in scope.
