Tudor House Museum
Tudor House is an early 16th Century building that was once 3 houses, lived in by Tudor weavers and their families. With the decline of the cloth trade, publicans, artists, paupers, merchants, dentists and a member of the Cadbury family used this building in a variety of ways. Visit us to discover their stories.
The collection focuses on the history of the house and the world events that shaped the people's lives, from the 16th Century to the mid-20th. Their occupations, pastimes and preoccupations moulded this house and left traces for us to find.

Richard Cadbury was a modest, self-effacing man who tried to help as many people as he could, without shouting about it. From the sweet factory that employed local disabled people, to paying the fines of conscientious objectors, with the help of his private records, we have been able to bring forward his story in this exhibition.
Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, 10.00 – 16.00

Telling the Tale
- 27 October 2017 7-9pm
Wander the museum by candlelight, gathering the clues to some of the tales of local ghosts, witches and legends our storyteller will enthrall you with. Can you keep your nerve as the boundaries between this world and the next become thinner, floorboards creak and the wind whistles through the gap under the door?
