Market Harborough
U3A Millennium Tapestry

Rowland Rouse, Townsman

This pane] is based on a contemporary portrait of this successful Harborough draper who was also the Administrator of the 'Town Estate' (in modern times the Market Harborough and the Bowdens Charity). His strong interest in local history and access to old documents and maps provided material for his first recorded history of the town. Unfortunately he was not able to publish his work, but later authors used his manuscript. At one time he lived at 45 High Street.
