Over the centuries Weavers Cottage has been a heritage centre, a home, a police box and a place of work. Now the Weavers’ Cottage is an 18th Century loom shop, found in the heart of Rawtenstall.
The building has stood since the mid to late 1700’s, and originally had its two top floors open-plan to make room for dozens of looms.
The Weaver Cottage welcomes families to visit to find out more about the history of this building as well as its place in local history.
