SWINFORD MUSEUM

Filkins

The 2022 season starts on SUNDAY 1ST  MAY at 2.00 and the exhibition this year will be based on the village since the Accession to the throne of Queen Elizabeth in 1952. Just what has happened hereabouts? You would be amazed at just some of the activities and milestones that have happened.

Sadly due to our storage problem only one room will be open but I can assure you it will still pack a punch!!

Are you researching your family who lived in Filkins and Broughton Poggs or have you always wondered where they lived? We will help you with assistance from the church records which have been transcribed by Gerald Webb and Diane Blackett. Sometimes our more senior Museum Friends may have personal knowledge of your relative. For more information or to book a meeting please telephone ether Diane Blackett 012367-860504 or Peter Gray 01367-860331. We would ask for a donation which will go towards keeping the museum running. Thank you.
