Newtown once had a thriving textile industry which has now declined but the Textile Museum brings its history alive. Situated in a 19th century weaving shop, the museum comprises of two floors of six domestic cottages arranged back-to-back as well as two rooms on the second and third floors that run the whole length of the building.
The museum provides a fascinating insight into the textile process from wool to yarn and our arranged afternoon tour will provide us with a history of the woollen industry in Newtown, and its importance to the town.
On arrival at Newtown, our morning is free to explore the Robert Owen Museum, Oriel Davies Gallery or one of the many eateries for lunch.
