2 years after the museum moved to the 1st floor of the Mile End Mill we have finally completed the move! On the 11th April we celebrated the redevelopment of the museum and redisplay of the cases with invited guests and members of the museum. We were also very pleased to welcome Sir Jack Stewart-Clark and John Bruce to represent both the Clark and Coats families respectively.

It has been a long 6 months leading up to this, with an electricity supply being installed on the mezzanine level, the installation of new display cases, and display monitor and the redisplay of the collection. The work has been worth it though and has already attracted many favourable compliments.

Pictures from the event will be posted shortly, but more importantly we want to welcome you back to the museum to see the revamp and explore our new themed displays. We are open all year round on a Wednesday and Saturday afternoon 12 to 4pm.

Many thanks to Media Monty : Broadcast Quality Video Content for producing the video of the evening.
