E. Walters Trouser Factory: A legacy remembered.

February - April 2024


The exhibit pays homage to the remarkable journey of the E. Walters Trouser Factory, once the largest employer in Ludlow. The factory which was established by Ed Walters in 1957 shaped Ludlow’s identity for decades.

The exhibition aims to celebrate the contributions of Ed Walters and his production legacy. We hope the exhibition will be a poignant opportunity for residents to reminisce and remember those who worked at the factory. 


Opening Times: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays 10-4pm.

(Closed between Christmas Eve and New Years Day)

Entry Fee:- Adults: £1.20; Children under 16 years of age: Free
