About your host

Brian Turner Trimmings Ltd has held the Queens royal warrant for 40 years. Brian Turner, third generation trimmings manufacturer, will take you to probably the last hand rope walk in the UK, 120 years of experience with machinery that is older but still working. A few hours learning the fundamentals of cord and rope making, a craft that is almost gone.
