Welcome to the heritage collections of the Alfred Gillett Trust.

Here you can explore nearly 100,000 historical objects and numerous archive collections spanning six generations of a family firm, the development of Street as a company village and nearly 200 years of shoemaking.

Through the work of the Alfred Gillett Trust, the large and varied collections of objects, books and archives provide a rich source of information and inspiration about the Clark family and C & J Clark Ltd for members of the public.

The Trust provides research and enquiry facilities for all interested in the history of the family, firm and Street, Somerset.

The Trust also works very closely with the separate Shoe Museum of C & J Clark Ltd, which showcases the development of the footwear industry and the history of the company.
