The Weaver's House

Description

In Spon Street, one of the most historic streets in Coventry, The Weaver’s House has been restored to show how it would have looked in 1540. Experience how John Croke, a Coventry narrow-loom weaver and his family would have lived and worked. You can also see a full-size replica of the loom he would have used. At the back of the Weaver’s House is a medieval garden showing the plants that would have been grown for food, flavouring, medicine and household use. The house is very close to the city centre and therefore other local places of interest. If you are planning to bring your group to Coventry, a visit to The Weaver’s House would be an ideal complement to larger sites. Visit the website for more details and to find out how the property was rescued from impending destruction and carefully restored.

Opening times

The house is open to the public every second Saturday of the month during the spring and summer. Please check the website for details. The FREE Open Days feature tours and talks and may include demonstrations of weaving, spinning, embroidery and other activities connected with medieval life. Refreshments are available on Open Days. If you can’t make it to one of the open days, tours of the house and garden are available throughout the year for groups large and small, subject to availability of volunteer guides. Tours can be tailored to specific interests. There is no specific charge, a suitable donation is appreciated.
