Back in 1816, the Heathcoat Lace Factory was established in Tiverton by John Heathcoat, an industrialist with a skill for inventing machinery, which took lacemaking from a cottage industry to factory mass production. Although destroyed by fire in 1936 and rebuilt, the business remains in operation today as Heathcote Fabrics.
