    Come to a hosier’s house built in the 1700s, and see the knitting workshop from the 1800s. This has eight original hand knitting frames, and all the equipment once used to make stockings and gloves. The house looks as it would have done in the 1920s/30s, and there is a period garden with cobbled yard for you to enjoy.
