An oral history project from the Framework Knitters Museum
As we approach our 50th anniversary in 2020, the Framework Knitters Museum is collecting memories of Chapel Street from current and former Ruddington residents. Did you dance at the Starlight Rooms? Ever seen in the New Year in the White Horse Inn? Perhaps you remember the knitters’ yard before it became a museum. If you have a special memory of Chapel Street, we’d love to hear it.
In our 50 years here, we’ve seen this small road change a great deal. We’ve said goodbye to the bakery and hello to new neighbours, and we’ve welcomed thousands of visitors. Now, we’d like to know more about the community that made up this corner of Ruddington. With generous support from the Co-op Local Community Fund, we’ll be recording these personal stories of Chapel Street to share with museum visitors and local people.
If you have memories, stories, images or objects relating to Chapel Street, please contact the museum’s manager and curator, Jim Grevatte, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0115 984 6914.
