Marton Museum of Country Bygones
Heritage Open Day: A museum of local rural artefacts developed from the collection made over many decades by George Tims, a village resident, who died in January 2005. An eclectic mix of artefacts showing how people lived and worked in the country. This small museum had been closed for some years following the death of its founder but is now being opened on Sunday afternoons during June, July and August by a group of volunteers who have been working on the cataloguing and preservation of the museum contents (well over 3000 to date). All of the exhibits were acquired locally and cover a wide variety of aspects of country life.
This year, the Museum will be open on the 18th and 19th September. There will be corn dolly demonstrations and other local crafts will, we hope, be on show. There will be home made cakes and refreshments on sale, Covid permitting.
Sat 18 Sep:1030 - 1700. Sun 19 Sep:1030 - 1700. Free Entry.
