May 1st – Market Lavington Museum opens

May 1, 2010

Let our Silver Jubilee year begin at Market Lavington Museum. It was in 1985 that we first opened our doors, so this year marks that twentyfifth anniversary.

The museum is open from today until the end of October on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Bank Holiday afternoons from 2.30 to 4.30.

If you wish to visit at other times do contact the curator and we will do our best to accommodate you.

And for a taster of the familiar, here’s a corner of the ‘Trades and Occupations’ room at the museum where you can see not only the tools that people used, but also learn a little of the people themselves.

Do pay us a visit in this, our Silver Jubilee year. Entry is free, but we do appreciate donations. We sell copies of the wonderful book about Market Lavington (Village under the Plain by Brian McGill) and also a CD of old photographs of the village.

The museum is accessed by footpath behind the parish church. The best parking is at The Community Hall.
