The work to convert the old bakery and factory buildings on Chapel Street is almost complete and most of the properties are already occupied. The conversion works have transformed the old industrial units on the right hand side of the street into a series of attractive homes for couples and families.
The new properties have a distinctly contemporary feel, but due to the sensitive nature of the design, blend in well with the surrounding historic buildings of the Framework Knitters Museum and White Horse Inn.
The museum has recently completed its own building project on Chapel Street, which has seen Gunn Cottage converted into two residential flats, which are now tenanted. The Framework Knitters Museum recently acquired the cottage with the long-term aim of creating additional display space and linking the main museum site with the chapel.
