Our centre has evolved from the fortuitous amalgamation of the woodwind making workshops of Ward & Winterbourn oboes, Dolmetsch Recorders and Daniel H Bangham: Classical Clarinets.
A variety of woodwind instruments will be made on site for observation and participation.
The centre is ever growing its unique resource of equipment and materials, including written literature and archive resources. Historic equipment is will be on view, including a "setting out" machine that has been in continuous use since, we believe, the 1880s.
The site is accessible by Foot, Bike, Bus, Rail and Road. The Citi 7 bus runs regularly to within walking distance (Ask for the Rose pub in Stapleford), as does the London Liverpool Street to Cambridge train line run nearby. (Shelford Station). The address is:
