Wiltshire, BA14 8AT

The Museum is housed within Salter's Mill, the last working woollen mill in Trowbridge.

A spinning Jenny being used at Courts Mill, Trowbridge in the 1890s
Constructed in 1850, the mill finally ceased textile production in 1982 and is now incorporated into the vibrant Shires Shopping Centre. Trowbridge Museum is uniquely placed to tell the story of the enterprise and industriousness of the men and women whose labours made the town the 'Manchester of the West', centre of West Country woollen cloth production.
