Our Autumn Exhibition is ‘Celebrating Westfield’ and is the next in the Village Histories series of exhibitions about our local communities past and present.
“The Way We Lived Then”. The History of Westfield: 1860-2017.
On until 29th November.
The fifth in the museum’s series of Communities and Villages Exhibitions; the Westfield councillors and volunteers have pulled together the many threads in Westfield’s long history which stretches from the Romans’ in AD 49 (building of the Fosse Way), though the quiet years of the agricultural middle ages, to the explosion of the coal mining industry in the nineteenth century which in turn supported various minor industries, to today’s flourishing small businesses and entrepreneurships.
All these endeavours have been supported by the active Church and Chapels in the area and latterly by the development of outstanding educational institutions.
Tribute is paid to the miners, the entrepreneurs, the war heroes and the ordinary people who achieved extraordinary things for their families and community.
See if you can spot your relatives in the illustrations, whether of the General Strike, the factory outings or the football teams.
