Welcome to Dawe’s Twineworks and the Coker Rope & Sail Trust
There are plans for a dedicated website, but in the meantime, here are some pictures (below) showing features and details of the Ropewalk.
The line shaft on the first floor was driven for the first time since the Twineworks closed 40+ years ago in November. Now the main shaft on the ground floor has been powered too. See the page dedicated to the restoration of the Twineworks’ machinery. HERE
The rebuilding of the west end of the Ropewalk is also now complete and looking splendid, see HERE
