Worstead, Norfolk's Golden Fleece Heritage Museum

NHER 17018

This museum is Worstead's baptist church. The Chapel has played an important part in local life since 1717 although th current building dates from 1829). The collections reflect this with reminders of local home and working life. Displays cover spinning, weaving and dyeing which were so important in Norfolk (and this area in particular) prior to the Industrial Revolution. It is normally possible to visit the "Weaver's Loft" where members of the Worstead Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers have work in progress.
