Nantwich Museum seeks information on Welsh Row and Cottage Hospital

A request for more information ahead of new exhibition

Nantwich Museum is researching an exhibition, “Welsh Row through the ages”, to be mounted at the Pillory Street venue over the summer.

Information is being sought about the history of Welsh Row’s buildings (current or demolished), the people who lived there, past shops and trades.

The museum’s volunteers would also like to hear of any interesting items - such as maps and pictures - which could possibly be lent to feature in the exhibition.

Constraints on space, however, mean that the museum wouldn’t be able to accept any items until shortly before the exhibition is being prepared for opening.

They’re also interested in the Cottage Hospital which opened near Welsh Row in 1911 and served the town until its closure in the 1970s.

Many residents still remember the hospital and its fund raising events.

The museum team is keen to hear reminiscences relating to the hospital and perhaps put names to any photographs of the time.

Those with information are requested to contact Nantwich Museum by the end of February.

For further information contact Nantwich Museum on enquiries@nantwichmuseum.org.uk or call 01270 627 104.
