About Ford Green Hall Museum
Ford Green Hall is a 17th century timber-framed farmhouse in Stoke-on-Trent. Every year it offers visitors (including thousands of children on school trips) a fascinating insight into our past. The Museum is also closely connected to the local community via craft workshops utilising original historic methods of production, theme-based activities for children during the school holidays, musical events and local history talks.
We are a Charitable Community Group who were set up to save the Museum from closure in 2013 and we now run the Museum and are responsible for maintaining the building.
Extensive restoration work undertaken in the 1980's led to many timber repairs involving the installation of timber mouldings which are now in poor condition, leading to water damage of the main beams. The repairs need to be completed within the next year and our lowest quote from a specialist builder is for £20,000.
We are appealing for contributions to help preserve this wonderful building so that future generations may enjoy its insight into the way our ancestors lived.
