Lavenham Guildhall, Suffolk
The garden of this timber framed building, one of the finest of its kind in Britain, contains plants used to dye medieval cloth from which the village derived its wealth. Madder and safflower produced reds and pinks, weld and cardoon provided yellows and greens while woad, elecampane and vipers bugloss yielded a blue dye. Teasels were used to finish the cloth. Regular exhibitions and demonstrations are given by the local Guild of Weavers, Spinners and dyers.
