Avoncroft Museum

In 1967 Avoncroft Museum was opened to the public following the rescue and reconstruction of a Medieval Merchant’s House from Bromsgrove town centre. Avoncroft’s priority is to retain historic buildings in their original location. Over five decades, Avoncroft Museum has continued to rescue structures where this had not been achievable. The Museum now displays and cares for over 25 historic buildings and structures. The show cases of buildings span several hundred years of history and include a barn, a toll house, a merchant house, various residential housing and a church.

Just some of the very interesting collections you will get the chance to investigate will comprise: A chainshop from Cradley in the Black Country. This was built in the mid-nineteenth century and produced handmade chains until 1969. When nail-making went into decline early in the nineteenth century, many nailshops adapted their forges for chain-making. The fourteen hearth layout is typical of the smaller factories of the time, which were often run as a family business.

A cell block which was built around the 1870s. This block was attached to the Magistrates Court in Church Street, Ledbury, Herefordshire. The cells housed people suspected of a crime before they were tried. Those held in such buildings were most often charged with crimes such as arson, poaching, petty theft, begging or vagrancy.
