Sunday Walk – From Weaver to Wearer

For over 350 years textile manufacturing was the mainstay of Congleton’s economic development. This trade influenced every aspect of the town’s life though the provision of services and its industrial, commercial and domestic architecture.

Meet at Congleton Museum at 2pm on Sunday 3rd March 2024 for the very first Sunday Walk of the season. Pay by either cash or card upon arrival, no need to book in advance. Each attendee will receive a physical booklet which will be referred to during the walk.

Following the walk, a cream tea will be provided back at the museum, upstairs in the Sue Dorman Room. Scones and jams are sourced locally. Please let us know at least 48 hours in advance if you have any dietary requirements or allergies.

Adults £10, Friends of Congleton Museum £7, Children FREE.

Please let us know any access enquiries in advance, as walks can be slightly tailored. Dogs are permitted on the walk around the town, but not inside the museum at any time. Guide dogs are welcomed.
