“You might easy know a doffer when she comes to town/With her long yellow hair and her pickers hanging down/With her rubber ties [tied] before her and her scraper in her hand. … [the verse concludes: She’ll never get a man]” (Traditional Music). Conway Mill closed in the mid-70s but from 1982 onward has been used for community development; since 2000 it has been a listed building (Conway Mill).
