The Museum is still closed

Bradford on Avon Museum

Restrictions on the use of the library building in which Bradford on Avon Museum is located mean that the Museum is unable to re-open yet. For the last seven months, not even the Museum’s Honorary Curator has been allowed to go in. Even now, he can have an hour, by booking an appointment. It is very frustrating!

So, regrettably, it does not seem likely that we will open again for the remainder of this year (we would normally be closed in December anyway) and we will let you have any news after Christmas.

Meanwhile, we have been adding to this website, so there is even more for you to discover. Members of the Museum Research Group have been looking into aspects of Bradford on Avon’s rich archaeological heritage and have been putting our newly-acquired geophysics equipment to use in the field -several fields in fact. Following up on a geophysical survey on Broughton Gifford Common, we have carried out some small excavations to try and make sense of the earthworks there. The Museum may be closed, but there is still life in it!
