Tweedie was a legend amongst the Lakeland folk for his wit, baritone voice, poetic words and high-quality Tweed goods.
Born in Hoddam, Dumfriesshire, Scotland in 1897, Mickey was an accomplished athlete and a distinguished member in the British Army before settling as a travelling tweed merchant with his newly-found passion for his native woollen cloth.
Every summer between 1922 until 1976, Mickey would travel to Grasmere, bringing together the community to sell his tweeds whilst resting with a pint. He was an institution, living life to the full and gave enormous pleasure to all who were privileged to know him.
His woollen cloth is no longer for sale here, but the legend certainly still lives on. You will find pockets of tweed sewn throughout our Bar & Lodge in honour of Mr Mickey Moscrop!
