Rather English - Visit the Museum in the Park, Stroud

A fantastic little museum in the heart of Stratford Park, on the outskirts of the Cotswold market town of Stroud, the Museum in the Park takes visitors through the story of the area's development, social and industrial history from the Iron Age to the present day.


Highlights for your author include a recreation of a country kitchen where visitors can sit and hear a recording of author Laurie Lee recounting his childhood memories of life in the area, and a huge painting showing bright red 'Stroudwater Scarlet' wool cloth drying in the summer sunshine in the Stroud valleys.
