Market Lavington Museum – your opinion matters

Some of our recent blog entries have been about My bit of Wiltshire, a couple of essays written in 1984. Eva Kirby’s writing includes this paragraph.

Back then, the museum was in the planning stage and Eva described the museum building as an ancient dwelling. Built in 1846, it opened as a museum in 1985 but, during the last two years, we have not been able to welcome visitors, firstly due to the Covid 19 pandemic and then because of essential building repairs and associated internal reorganisation.

All being well, we hope to be able to reopen in 2022 and would like to improve our visitor and volunteer numbers, and consolidate our cultural contribution to Market Lavington and the local area. 

We have produced a short survey  to help us understand what our visitors expect from our museum experience and a few things about how they use the internet and receive information. This information will help us to apply for funding to build a new website for the museum, to improve communication with our visitors and to encourage more volunteers to help us on our journey. We are particularly interested in hearing from people who live locally and within the wider Wiltshire community. We would equally like to hear from any past or future visitors.

You can find the survey at and, as an incentive, anyone who completes the survey by 12 noon on the 17th October and submits their email address will be entered into a prize draw to win £50.

Please consider taking part in our survey and we look forward to seeing you when we re-open.

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