1910 Axminster Jacquard Carpet Loom.

One of the most popular parts of a visit to the Museum is seeing the grand centrepiece in action - the 1910 Axminster Jacquard Carpet Loom.

Regular demonstrations are provided by skilled carpet weavers who produce the Museum’s own Manor House Rug, available for purchase through the Museum Shop.

The Axminster Carpet Loom features over 1000 Jacquard punch cards and over 100 bobbins of different colours of wool. Visit Victorian Collections to learn more.
