Mr Straw’s House…

Mr Straw's House, Worksop

I had a great visit earlier this week to Mr Straw’s House (in Worksop) where there are lots of links to food. More of those soon – but why not visit the house yourself? It was the home of the Straw family who had a grocery business in Worksop itself. Being of a generation for whom ‘waste not, want not’ was a way of life, they lived without many of the modern comforts that became available from the 1920s and threw very little away: ‘Photos, letters, Victorian furniture and household objects can still be seen exactly where their owners left them’.

You need to pre-book for visits. See the website at http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-mrstrawshouse/ for details of opening times and ring 01909 482380 to book.
