John Passmore Edwards


St Agnes Miner's & Mechanics' Institute

In 1891 Dr William Whitworth wrote to Mr Passmore Edwards seeking his help to provide a Miners' and Mechanics' Institute. Mr Edwards replied that he had wanted to do something for the parish of his birth for a long time and would be more than pleased to supply a building.
