Press Release - Museum to explore the story of Melksham
|Press Release: 01/05/2012|
New museum to explore the story of Melksham
On Saturday 12th May 2012 a new and exciting museum will open in Melksham. The Well House Collection will explore the story of Melksham through a series of themed exhibitions.
The Well House Collection team are now busy preparing the museum and need the help[c2]àof Melksham[c2]àresidents[c2]àto help bring the story to life. From keepsakes from the past to trinkets of the modern age, the team needs your assistance in finding objects.[c2]à Over the next few months we will be asking for your help to find items for certain themes behind the story of Melksham. The first theme we are collecting items for concerns transport.
Transport has long been a key storyline in Melksham, from the 17th century when the main stagecoach route between Bristol and London passed through Melksham, to the 18th century when the inland waterways of the River Avon and the Wilts and Berks Canal allowed for a cheaper alternative route; from the opening of the Great Western Railway in the mid 19th century, to the establishment of industries linked to transport in the 20th century. Then there •s the coaches and buses, the bikes, the horses and the cars. Transport gives us many stories to tell - and we need your help in finding items that can help tell it.
Opens 11 a.m., Saturday 12th May 2012, at Well House Manor, then every afternoon through the summer.
Well House Manor is on Spa Road (the Devizes road from Melksham's market square), a few hundred yard from the centre of town. Free parking on site. Coffees, teas, cream teas available daily. Please do pop in and have a look! (written 2012-05-11)
