A Load of Old Cobblers!

Walk: Fri 20 May 2016 6:30pm
Venue: Start: Museum Admission: £3

… and some butchers, bakers and candle-makers as well… that’s the theme of the first of our Summer Walks.

We’ll show you where everything from soap to saddles, beef to beer, and baskets to bonnets were made and sold in Thornbury in days gone by.

Wallpaper making, leather tanning and rope-making are some of the less well-known activities also carried out in the town.

There is even a link with the real tailor in Beatrix Potter’s Tailor of Gloucester story.

We start from the Museum in Chapel Street and the walk will last about one and a half to two hours, finishing in the High Street.

The walk is suitable for wheelchair users. No dogs, other than guide dogs, please.

 

Tickets should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum.
