This new exhibition explores aspects of the history of the industry in and around Bridport.
Monday 15th May
Discover more about The Court Works, North Mills, Pymore and Burton Bradstock. Explore the transition from cottage industry to factory and the rise of the Gundry, Edwards and Hounsell families.
Travel outside the town to Symondsbury, Bradpole, Chideock, Whitchurch Canonicorum, Walditch, Bothenhampton and Stoke Abbott to see how the villages played in the industry, from the growing of the hemp and flax, to the processing and working as ‘outworkers’ for the factories.
Free entry whenever the Town Hall is open.
