Such an interesting tour !! The way it's don't is really clever. There A no guide just head phones and everyone goes along listening to a podcast in their own time. No rushing... lots of time to admire the stitch work.

Over 100 volunteers have made these tapestries, representing the foundation of their town over 800 years ago. They are a wonderful example of the love of the workers for their craft and their history.

If you enhoy and admire painstakingly handcrafted tapestry you'll be enchanted by this work, the output of several people over many years. If you're looking for unambiguous history it must be regarded with some reservations.
