Newtown Textile Museum is a museum set in typical 19thC weaving factory in Newtown, Powys and is managed by Eva Bredsdorff, senior museum curator (Montgomeryshire). The building is Grade 2* listed by Cadw so all works require their approval. Prior to recent improvements the museum had major problems with poor condition of the building fabric. There were also complications due to the occupation of the cottages associated with the factory by three tenants. Between 1995 and 2003 Powys County Council with the support of The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) refurbished the building and took ownership of the cottages. The whole site was then developed into a museum. The museum now comprises a row of three two storey cottages with two floors of weaving shops above.
