I never knew that Trowbridge was so crucial to West of England Cloth production. Amazing to see working machinery. Trowbridge had so many connections to so many things: Hadens Engineers supplied the central heating systems for the House of Commons and Windsor Castle, Bowyers Pork Pies were based in Trowbridge and it also holds great significance to the story of Sir Isaac Pitman, the man who invented shorthand, which has so many connotations today with regards to language.
There is loads for the kids to do, with an activity area in the castle for children and loads of trails such as a Mouse Hunt and it's all free.
You can easily spend all day around the Museum and Trowbridge a there are also a series of six trails that highlight the rich heritage and culture of the town.
