net-machine2Bridport Museum are seeking people to help them identify a new and exciting collection of rope and net making machinery as part of their redevelopment plans. The aim to rebuild them and display them in the refurbished museum so visitors can really see how rope and net were made.

You may have heard that we have  entered an exciting phase of re-development which has come about as a result of a bequest from the Sanctuary family of the contents of their museum which was formerly located at Uploders. Part of that bequest consisted of some rope and net machinery which had been dismantled and is now in pieces.
