Follow the story of Lucy Mellodey (1870-1930), a cotton weaver from Blackburn in Lancashire who swapped mill work for nearly 30 years in the interior of China as a missionary. When she set sail for the first time in 1899, Lucy embarked on a life of travel and experiences which few working class women of the time had opportunity to pursue. The exhibition tells her story through original documents, photographs and artefacts.
