The main trade of Wimborne Minster town at a certain point in its history was weaving. Some of the weavers would have been operating their looms in St George’s Chapel at The Minster. We believe that this chapel is named because St George is the patron saint of weavers.

These are the tapestries which will be displayed in St George’s Chapel.
