Friends have various levels of involvement. Some have a hands on role, occasionally showing groups around, or helping with the general housekeeping of the cottage (no heavy work involved), or learning to operate and demonstrate the hand loom, or maybe being involved in publicity.

Others just want to give moral support to the preservation of this treasure.

In any case all are most welcome.

By prior arrangement or during local and national

heritage events. 

Open the second Sunday of each month 

14:00 to 16:00

Families or groups are most welcome.

Generally party size is restricted to 10 persons, because of the size

of the accommodation.

Special arrangements can be made for school or larger parties in association with other local community facilities.

A tour will typically take about an hour and your guide will describe various aspects of the cottage and the weaving community to which the family would have belonged. There will be time to browse and look more closely at exhibits.
