Free Open Day

Experience how John Croke, a Coventry narrow-loom weaver and his family would have lived and worked in the 1540s. The restored historic building includes a full-size replica of a medieval loom in the upstairs ‘solar’ room. Explore the working medieval garden showing the plants that would have been grown for food, flavouring, medicine and household use. Enjoy talks on the daily life of a weaver in bygone days, medieval times, and the history of the building. You may also see demonstrations including weaving and spinning during your visit.

Tea, coffee and homemade cakes are served on Open Days.

Please note the solar room containing the loom is accessed by ladder.
