Swinford Museum Events

Swinford Museum

The Museum is now open on the first and third Sunday of the month 2.00pm - 5.00pm.
We are celebrating the centenary of the end of World War 1 with a lovely display of 1000 + poppies which have been knitted by the ladies and gentlemen of the community. Of course we show four purple poppies which represent the animals also killed in the war.
An exhibition of 50 years of the village by-pass shows how it affected the village.
Another exhibition explains about toilets and bath prior to indoor sanitation which includes the public baths at the Village Centre which opened in 1935.
If you are a member of a group and would like to visit our museum we offer a guided tour of the village followed by a Filkins cream tea. For more information please telephone Diane on 01378-860504. Thank you and look forward to seeing you soon.
