Worshipful Company of Cordwainers

The Cordwainers have supported the museum with a grant to help improve the shoe collection.

This included funding a replica chopine, a women's platform shoe used in the medieval period, for the new galleries.

Further funding has helped to establish the Cordwainer student of the year collection. As a result we have been able to collect shoes made by the students and accompanying stories and oral histories.

Students from Northampton College developed skills and experience as part of the project.
