Huge thanks to Victoria for all her work in organising things. Here are some pictures of events during the 2023 summer.

Photo studio - Dressing up

Portrait photos were very popular in the second half of the 1800s. We have quite a collection from the studio of John Owen who worked in Newtown from the 1860s. We have created a photo studio of our own! 
We now have a collection of Victorian-style clothing in our Recreated Bedroom where you can dress up and take a photo that is reminiscent of the Victorian times. Loads of fun to imagine living in our cottages and working on the looms, but many of those having their portraits taken in the old days would have lived in better housing as the photos were not cheap!
