93-year-old knits replica of Buckingham Palace

Words by Abi Scaife

A nonagenarian knitter has knitted a replica of Buckingham Palace.

Amazing! Tell me more.

Margaret Seaman, aged 93, has knitted an 8ft (2.4m) x 5ft (1.5m) replica of Buckingham Palace.

The brilliant knitter from Caister-on-Sea, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, has used her crafts to raise nearly £100,000 for charity.

That’s brilliant!

In December, Margaret was presented with a British Empire Medal for her contributions to charity - a fitting tribute to her work, as she has decided to hang up her knitting needles for now.

If you want to see Margaret’s work in person, it is currently on display at the Norfolk Makers' Festival at The Forum, Norwich.
