DIGGING UP THE PAST – THE CIVIL WAR THAT SPLIT THE EDEN VALLEY 1642 – 1660
A fascinating exhibition telling the story of the English Civil War in the Eden Valley and inspired by a donation of artefacts discovered by a metal detectorist at Starborough Castle. Visitors can decide whether they would have been a Cavalier or a Roundhead after reading about the effects of the civil war on local communities and great houses.
CRESTED CHINA – A POTTED HISTORY
A delightful display of a wide variety of early 20th century small china objects featuring the Edenbridge Crest with some stamped ‘Made for the Chronicle Office Edenbridge’. A swan, an elephant, a lighthouse, and a WW1 tank are just a few examples from an eclectic collection loaned to the museum by local resident Colin Fairman.
THE MANOR HOUSE OF DELAWARE
A model of the Manor House of Delaware is now on display at the museum. Owned by the Seyliard family who feature in the Civil War exhibition.
