Did you know that Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was written in Lavenham, inspired by the stars above the town? The words were penned by the then 23 year old poet Jane Taylor, taken from her poem for children The Star. The piece was written in 1806 at her residence in Shilling Street, and was part of a collection Rhymes for the Nursery which she co-authored with her sister Ann.
