    • Chiderminster was the ancient name of the town. It was incorporated in the reign of Charles I. The great industry in carpet mfr., which is so familiarly associated with Kidderminster, originated in 1735 - flat carpets being first made, and afterwards, in 1749, the cut carpets. At the present time it is principally Brussels and what are known as tapestry carpets which form the greater part of the mfr. There are also in the town worsted spinning mills, silk damask works, dye-works, lead works, &c. The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal passes the town. The borough returns 1 member to Parliament."

      KIDDERMINSTER - Extract from National Gazetteer, 1868
      The inhabitants [of Kidderminster]are chiefly engaged in the manufacture of carpets, which was first introduced in 1735. The varieties principally made are Scotch, tapestry, or Venetian, and Brussels, which last are woven by steam-power; also finger-rugs, woollen and worsted goods, silk coverings for buttons, and waistcoat pieces. There are besides iron foundries, malting-houses, breweries, a paper-mill, wire-works, dye-works, brickfields, and tanneries.
