It really is a marvel that some of these buildings are still standing.
Before heading off to the Guildhall I popped into Cafe Knit and treated myself to some lovely Noro Silk Garden Sock. I'm so jealous that Lavenham has a cafe where you can by yarn (lovely yarn) and knit and crochet, it had a lovely friendly atmosphere too. Whilst in there I overheard a woman saying that she didn't like blogs she had to keep scrolling down - oops - well she won't like this one but you can't win them all;)
After my diversion in Cafe Knit we went into the National Trust's Guildhall which is a town museum.
Down to the cellar where there is a history of Lavenham from prehistoric times to the present day.
Upstairs there is lots of relics from Lavenham's time as a wool town.
Some old oak steps.
A mummified cat called Rameses - these were kept in houses to ward off evil spirits.
Spinning and winding
General cottage equipment for a spinner.
Genuine teasel brush.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was written in Lavenham by Jane Taylor.
Back out on to the streets of Lavenham.
