Nelson Village is all but lost in the expanse of the Percy Estate these days but stands as a testament to the vision of the Victorian industrialist George Nelson.

 

"It may be out of place if we refer to the fact that this Company seem to have fully comprehended the proper relations that should exist between Capital and Labour. The firm pay good wages and provide a very large number of their employes with comfortable houses of their own construction, which are built on a large estate adjoining the works, with due regard to comfort and sanitary conditions, and are let to them at most reasonable rents. Indeed, Nelson Village is quite a model colony, containing as it does, twenty-three work-men's cottages and two pretty villas for the Works Managers."

Alfred Barnard 1899
