JHA has been appointed by Trowbridge Museum, to support their ‘Onwards and Upwards’ project to expand and enhance the award winning Museum, located in the historic Home Mill.
The Onwards and Upwards project will conserve the building which has a significant heritage value in the woollen cloth production in the west of England as well as showcase working machinery and referencing the industrial landscape. The expansion will also allow the Museum to develop its learning and outreach service to improve access to archives as well as create more opportunities for community participation and partnerships.
