Forge Mill Needle Museum, Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre
Wed 22 October to Sun 23 November 2014

The Forge Mill Volunteer Group explores the early and fascinating history of our region.

They start in the Anglo-Saxon period, when this area was part of the Kingdom of Mercia, and move onto the fragile unification of England which began under King Alfred.

They continue with the Norman Conquest and the rise of the great monasteries, the Black Death, the end of feudalism and how it culminated in the War of the Roses.

The Group examine the changes which occurred in our region during those troubled times and illustrate how there is still so much evidence around us that relates to this interesting period of our history.

Medieval Redditch Exhibition

In addition to the permanent exhibits at the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre, we also have a wide variety of interesting and exciting exhibitions throughout the year.

The exhibitions are housed on the middle floor of the Mill building.

There is no additional charge to enter the exhibitions, since the cost is included in our normal admission rates.
