Framework Knitters Museum

A unique complex of listed frameshops, cottages and outbuildings arranged around a garden courtyard with an adjacent former chapel in which many of the knitters worshipped. The site has been restored to show the living and working conditions of the framework knitters who occupied it throughout the 19th century. This is a working museum with machinery in use and the opportunity for visitors to ‘have-a-go’.
