Trowbridge Museum Heritage Trail

Date: 10th September 2022

Time: 10am-4pm

As part of Heritage Open Days, the Museum have jointly planned a fun heritage trail for you to complete. You can pick up your trail route map from Trowbridge Museum, located in Grade 2 listed Home Mills, a beautiful former woollen cloth mill (entrance through the Shires Shopping Centre), which is where the trail starts.

The trail route will take you to a further 5 other significant heritage sites, including the Blind House, and finish at the resplendent Parade House, a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse on Fore Street, where a cream tea will be available for refreshment.

As you follow the trail look out for one of Stumpy’s little pals (toy sheep) in each of the six sites. Make a note of their names on the trail sheet – 6 to collect in total and claim a small prize at Parade House!

To finish the Heritage Open Day festival the Museum have teamed up with the Wiltshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers to join the World Wide Spin in Public initiative, where folk come together to demonstrate this wonderful craft.

There will be a host of spinners and weavers too, all showing how yarn is made and woven into cloth. Call into the Museum between 10am – 4pm to see these brilliant skills in person and chat to the spinners and weavers who will be delighted to share their love of all things woolly!
