TROWBRIDGE Museum will be displaying a dress with an interesting history when it re-opens after refurbishment later next year.

The team at the museum have found and bought a Mary Quant dress made of cloth woven in Trowbridge.

The provenance was confirmed as the dress bears a label used only by the weaving mill Samuel Salter Ltd.

It cost £150 and was paid for by the Friends of Trowbridge Museum.

It will go on display when the museum reopens and is thought to attract many visitors.
