A unique collection of restored cottages and workshops arranged around a garden courtyard. Walk round to see how a local Victorian community lived and worked, watch live demonstrations of their machines, try your hand at knitting on a 19th-century sock machine, see a collection of hosiery spanning 200 years, perhaps watch a short film, and then relax with a cup of tea in the garden or teashop before checking out the museum craftshop. For special events and exhibitions, see the website.
The local community saved the site from the bulldozer in 1971. It is now operated as a Charitable Trust and has recently been expanded with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

 

Adults £4.00; students £3.00; children £2.00; family ticket £10.00.

Group bookings accepted for day or evening visits all year round.
