I got this request by e-mail. Can anybody help?
Thanks.

    Don't suppose you know anything about 'Tankard's Mill' a weavers song, do you?
    My Mum used to sing it and all I can remember is:

    "There is no rest for me,
    There is no rest for me
    At Tankards' Mill where the work runs ill
    There is no rest for me"

Yes, MMario, that was thread creep - but a little Tennyson here and there is good for the soul. It's also a good excuse to refresh the thread, no?

I got an e-mail from a man named Michael who says his father was a manager of a mill called Tankards aka Staincliffe Low Mills on the border of Dewsbury and Batley in Yorkshire U.K.

Might that tidbit of information help somebody find the song?
