HLF Transformation – The Local History Room will open in 2019 as the Georgian Life Room

New stories, new displays

(This page is awaiting new photographs & information – come back soon…)

This room displays antiquarian finds and historical artifacts from the local area  –  fossils, pottery, leather industry, shops and the lace industry.

Please note that the displays in this Local History room tend to change relatively frequently depending upon which aspects of local history the museum wishes to promote.



New to this room are biographical panels of John Newton’s life story
