Ludlow Museum at the Buttercross
Free entry to the Ludlow Museum at the Buttercross until 1st April 2022
Take advantage to see the Reynolds of Ludlow exhibition
In 1946 a factory was established at the bottom of Broad Street by cabinet maker Arthur Reynolds with his young son, Garth, as apprentice.
Until it was devastated by fire in 1977 Reynolds of Ludlow represented the highest standard of Quaker-style furniture.
Ludlow Museum at the Buttercross is currently hosting an exhibition in celebration of the craft of this ‘state of the art’ business.
Come and see one of their famed pieces, kindly loaned to the museum by a local researcher of Reynolds, alongside photographs and catalogues illustrating the work and the ruinous fire.
Entry in to the Museum is currently free until the end of March 2022 in a bid to encourage locals and visitors to come and visit us, although donations are always gratefully received.
Mayor of Ludlow, Councillor Robin Pote, commented “we would love local people who remember the factory, and the fire, to call in to the Museum to share with us their memories. It is fantastic that local history enthusiasts share these important items with us and we are pleased to be able to create these displays”.
We are also hoping to hold a ‘Conversation with Garth Reynolds’ in the Museum in the Museum in late February/early March, please follow our social media, check the website or the blue Museum door for more information.
There’s another new arrival at the Museum. The Catherine of Aragon knitted post box topped gifted to Ludlow in November from the Syston Knitting Banxy has been saved from its location where it was beginning to unravel and we are hoping for it to have its own display plinth very soon.
