Wheelwrighting at the museum

On Wednesday 1st September staff and volunteers hooped 3 wheels using traditional methods, following a successful wheel hoop earlier in the year.  The vintage binder (circa 1870) can now be fully restored.  There are two videos below of the days events.  The event was also attended by a master wheelwright Phillip Gregson and his two apprentices Charlotte and John.  Phillip had seen the previous wheel hoop video on youtube and came a long way to see the rest done!  Thanks to all who took part and spectated.
