Market Lavington Museum under wraps

Market Lavington Museum is housed in a building erected as a home in the 1840s and is feeling its age. At the time of writing, in Spring 2021, we await some essential building work .

Normally, we take a pride in displaying artefacts connected with the history of Market Lavington and Easterton and enjoy sharing them with our visitors.

This is how the kitchen, with its range, looks in normal times.

With builders expected imminently, we needed to move and protect items on open display and the scene in the kitchen at present looks like this.

There is a similar situation in the living room, with displays dismantled, artefacts wrapped and protected and stored away from dust and damage.

When the remedial work has been completed, we will take the opportunity to freshen up the paintwork, consider which items need relocating and then begin work on new displays.

We apologise for being unable to reopen in May as we would have wished and look forward to welcoming back our visitors when all the work has been done.

    Hello Sue – I hope your renovations go well and remain in budget and programme. I am sure the Museum will look even better afterwards, with its new look! Are you planning a re-opening event? When could that be? Regards Stephen Cotton

      Thanks Stephen. We have no idea of a timescale as yet. After the building work there will be redecorating and a lot of moving of heavier items downstairs and lighter ones upstairs. So a lot of upheaval over several months, I expect.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
