This was an interesting place to visit. We learned a lot about medieval building techniques, diet, lifestyle and craft as well origins of many well known phrases.

This is a medieval weavers cottage. Quite a small place which conveys the life of ordinary people. It is not open routinely but does have open days

Such a wonderful hidden gem, in a major city. A superb open day, showcasing this small but excellently maintained building and garden, staffed by a very enthusiastic team of volunteers. Well done and thank you.
