The Merchant’s new clothes

Our Elizabethan merchant has had a make-over, thanks to our talented volunteer, Linda Simon. Over several months, Linda has painstakingly researched, sourced and sewn this beautiful outfit. Now you can see the merchant in all his glory when you visit the Elizabethan Room in the Museum. Officially opened on 16th September 2018, the refurbished Wall Paintings Room continues to welcome visitors.
