Sunday Best and Unmentionables

Our New Exhibition for 2019.

 

The temporary exhibition for 2019 is all about clothes made in Leominster. Because it has been the centre of a rich agricultural area for centuries, the town has been well supplied with many of the raw materials for making clothes & shoes – especially wool, linen, leather and straw. The exhibition focuses especially on hats, gloves, shoes and Victorian farming smocks, most of which were made in or near the town.
