Educational Resources

We have available a number of learning resources:

The Museum's collection

Our key resource, most of which can be handled or indeed lent to schools and organisations for short periods. The collection includes objects, dressing up clothes of the period, and photographs, with a further extensive collection of photographs held by Bishop's Castle Heritage Resource Centre.

The Changing Landscape

This is a learning resource consisting of a collection of photographs relating to farming and the countryside. This comes as a CD, and is available for purchase. You can view a sample page here.
