Displayed in the library and very well interpreted - lots of information on the story of the invasion, which I certainly didn't know about, and also how the tapestry was put together.

A nice piece of work and other things of interest worth a visit on a Thursday when the market is open

The tapestry took 70 people to create. Wonderful work with a great historical story. The colours and quality of work was awe inspiring.
