A Holt Collection
It was assembled by the late Pam Gooding and it was her wish that it go to the Museum after her death. Pam set aside a room in her house as a Holt museum and welcomed visitors to it.
The collection contains photographs, newspaper cuttings, souvenirs and objects that relate to the 18th-century Holt Spa, Beavens’ leather factory, the Goff family of The Courts and Forsters of Holt Manor, church and chapel, pubs and schools.
There is also a collection of tools that belonged to her father, who worked for the carpenters Forster (later Manning) in Winsley.
The Museum hopes to display some of the collection soon.
