Rope Making

Rope Making

Watch and help us to make rope.


Ropes are an essential piece of equipment, used in mining, shipping and almost all industrial tasks. Some rope fragments still exist from over 3000 years ago.

Today we still make rope at Morwellham and invite our visitors to help turn the handles and help to make the rope or just watch the process of our traditional rope making.

Children and adults can get involved and discover the principles of this age old craft.
