Belford Museum

  • Description

    ."....This small, free, volunteer-run museum and resource centre is based in Belford’s historic Reading Room. Exhibitions about the men and women of Belford and how they lived their lives fill the front and back rooms on the right hand side of the building as you enter it.

    In the front room we also have a listening post on which you can hear residents’ memories of times past. This year's new displays include an Exhibition about the mills, farms and people of Waren and Spindlestone; the life of Eleanor Weatherly, whose diary describes life in this area at the beginning of the nineteenth century; and information about the local men who became Japanese Prisoners of War after the Fall of Singapore in 1942.

    At the back of the hallway, is a resource and library area for those who want to research family connections with the village...."
