Forge Mill Needle Museum
The Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch, Worcestershire, is a historic museum depicting Redditch's Industrial Heritage. Opened in 1983 by Queen Elizabeth II, it records how in Victorian times, Redditch was the international centre of the needle and fishing tackle industry and once produced 90% of the world's needles.
Models and recreated scenes provide a vivid illustration of how needles were once made, and the museum organises many exhibitions, demonstration, and workshops on how needles were used in the textile industry.
