When & Where
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection is an independent charity based at Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, Lancashire. Originally called the Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth Collections, the charity was created after the death of our founder, Miss Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth (1886- 1967) to care for the collection of textiles she had amassed and to make it accessible through learning programmes and curated collection displays in the Hall itself.
We work in partnership with Lancashire County Council and the National Trust, who together manage the Hall and its grounds.
