Our museum is currently closed

News Update – 14 March 2022

Recently we have had a few enquiries about reopening the museum so in response to those enquiries here is a news update.

Although we have been closed to the public for nearly 2 years a small team of volunteers have been hard at work during much of that time.

They have gone through every box and cabinet to update our collection inventory. Hundreds of photos recently donated to us have also been scanned and catalogued.

Some work still remains to catalogue a large number of donated documents.

Recently our volunteers have deep cleaned the museum and are now setting up some “all new” displays ready for opening soon.

No date has been set yet so watch this space.

Any enquiries to

There are photos of previous displays on this web site and on Google Maps as well.
