Maccesfield Museums are devastated to report the Silk Museum was broken into on morning of 2nd August around 5am.
 
On top of the thieves creating a huge amount of damage to the museum building, they have smashed the donations box and taken public donations as well as stealing 2 medals awarded to Charles Tunnicliffe:
 
  • Gold Medal - awarded to Charles Tunnicliffe for his services to bird protection by the Royal Society of the protection of birds in 1975.
  • OBE - awarded to Charles Tunnicliffe for service to the arts.
 
On the centenary year of Charles Tunnicliffe this a callous act and is a huge blow to the museum in what is already a difficult year.
 
Please share these images of the medals far and wide, FHSC hope that they can be returned soon.
 
 
The Silk Museum a great home for Macclesfield's past and a great space for Macclesfield's present and future.
