Visit to Museum of Barnstaple & N Devon (Bideford Branch)
Fri. 15 July 2022 at 2:00 pm
The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon is, we’re told, a ‘centre of curiosity, a house of stories and a place for learning’ all of which sounds absolutely fascinating. In addition, at this present time there is an exhibition inspired by the Museum’s Partridge Collection.
The young Ethel Partridge was a collector of local fossils which she then gave to the North Devon Athenaeum in 1907 and which now resides with the Museum. Researching her collection, the Museum discovered that there was far more to Ethel’s story and that her brother Fred had a story to be told as well. From all accounts they are both well worth hearing.
If you are able to do so please join us on 15 July at 2.00pm. We will meet just outside the new entrance to the Museum in Barnstaple Square where there are several car-parks close by.
If you intend to come please contact the Organiser by the close of Monday 11 July.
