Women using Gane brush-filling machines at the factory of S. D. Page and Sons in 1901 (painted panel in the Tea Room)
Wymondham was once a renowned centre for woodturning and this evolved into brush-making becoming a major industry in the town.
Discover the history of brush-making in the town from its beginnings in the woodturning trade to its height when two major companies, The Briton Brush Company and The Cooperative Brush Company, had operating factories in the town and the reasons for its eventual decline.
The display contains numerous tools that were used in the manaufacture of brushes through the ages and also has an operating 1890s Cane brush filling machine.
Admission is included in the museum's normal admission prices.
