The Autumn exhibition opens on Tuesday September 18th.

WORLD WAR 1….. HOW IT CHANGED US: 1914- 1924

The autumn exhibition illustrates, with words and pictures, the subtle changes that the Great War of 1914-18 brought about in the villages of the Somerset Coalfield.

The absence of the men created working opportunities for the women while they were away; but when the men returned…..?

When war ended there were many positive changes within the village communities.

The exhibition includes contributions from the villages and towns of Buckland Dinham, Camerton, Clapton, Clutton, Midsomer Norton, Paulton, Radstock, Shoscombe and Welton.

Included are the stories of The Beauchamp Girls of Welton; presented by Museum Trustee and Local Historian, Tom Randall.

Runs until Friday 30th November 2018.

 


This autumn the Museum is also proudly displaying three winning models from the WI competition to ‘Knit Your Village’.
