Framework Knitters Museum

The museum features two preserved workshops, a row of workers cottages, garden and a chapel. Watch a framework Knitter in action in the frameshop. Have a go at a griswold sock machine and make your own scarf or hat. Explore the historic cottages and see how the manager and workers lived and the conditions which led to the Luddite revolt. Visit the chapel and our historic hosiery collection. Why not visit the Little Textile Emporium, our shop devoted to promoting local textile makers. We have gifts and cards for every occasion to suit all budgets. Finish your visit in the delightful tea room over looking the garden. See our website for admission prices.
