Situated in its last working woollen mill in Trowbridge which closed in 1982, Trowbridge Museum tells the rich and varied story of the town, its people and the development and manufacture of its famous and high quality West of England woollen cloth.
Building upon 25 years of success, the museum has embarked on a development project to create a unique heritage attracation in the centre of Trowbridge and indeed the West of England.
The total cost of the development is £2,595,600.
In addition to a development grant of £100,000, the Heritage Lottery Fund has ring-fenced another £975,000 towards the expansion on the condition that we raise the remainder.
Trowbridge Town Council is providing matched funding of £1,053,850 towards the capital project and we have already received pledges and in-kind support for £289,800
We therefore have an outstanding cash shortfall of £176,950 and we are seeking support from others who share our vision.
