The Framework Knitters’ Museum: Catch the Navy 3 or Green 10 to Chapel Street.
This small, unspoilt museum housed in original four hundred year-old Framework Knitters’ workshops and cottages has acquired an international reputation in recent years. As well as its innovative displays, an attractive garden, cosy tea room and shop it has operational Framework Knitting machines – some of which you can try out yourself to create a unique souvenir. The Old Chapel opposite houses an art gallery, with free admission, displaying the work of local painters. Both sites are open all year except January – but check http://www.frameworkknittersmuseum.org.uk for seasonal opening times, prices and special events.
The museum was closed temporarily by trustees on Thursday 19th March 2020 to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its volunteers, staff and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic. After continuing to engage with people via its social media channels during lockdown, it is reopening with COVID secure safety measures in place – including advance booking only – on Wednesday 29th July 2020.
