In 1996 a group of Sunbury residents decide to celebrate the Millennium by creating an embroidery in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry. The embroidery was to represent the people and community of Sunbury and involved over 150 people. After a visit by the Queen in 2000, it was decided that the embroidery should have a permanent home, that would also act as a focus for the community.

It comprises a steel framed cafe and work room area with structural glass walls, while the gallery housing the embroidery has elliptical brickwork walls and a timber roof with clerestory steel framing.The Gallery is funded mostly by public subscription. We are extremely proud to be involved with this project.
