Visit to Cotswold Woollen Weavers

The weather was certainly glorious on our group outing to the Cotswold Woollen weavers, the sun shone which made the buildings glow with the honey coloured stone. The weaving looms have been quiet for the last 2 years (?) at this mill, but the looms are still there as well as all the equipment used.

We were also lucky to  have  a short talk from the owner, Richard, and learnt a number of useful facts about the mill and Filkins where it is situated.

We also indulged in a delicious lunch at the adjoining Cafe. Needless to say we had time to shop as well, before returning to our usual meeting place in Cricklade. We all agreed a most interesting start to our new theme of work. Time to start thinking and designing now..........
