The Launder Centre


There were two houses on this site which have been adapted as a Launder Centre.  For many Wollaston inhabitants of the past this business would be unfamiliar.  When most washing was undertaken at home before electrical washing machines and dryers were common, the weekly wash was hard work.  Today if you haven’t the space for a modern washing machine or dryer, a facility like this makes light work of the washing.
