The beautiful timber framed buildings for which Lavenham is so famous are the legacy of a thriving industry in cloth production, whose merchants made Lavenham one of the wealthiest towns in Tudor England. This talk by Jane Gosling, former Manager of the Guildhall, explores their rise to fame, the houses they left behind, and the inevitable crash that followed. This talk will be followed by a light lunch from the Tearoom.
