We're learning fast about Devon attitudes to work and services. Have to give this an average, because it wasn't open when we got there. Well I suppose it is a charity and voluntary?

Hi, Thank you for your comment, we used to be housed on the top CarPark. but it was very damp for the collection. The Management applied for a Lottery Grant to enable them to rent the Council building that we are in now. Hope to see you again. Many thanks, Pat More

Used to be under a cliff at the seashore, so took me time to find the new location. A lot of old remarkable stuff, souvenirs from time gone by... Very interesting of how our ancestors lived at this place Martinhoe once called. Small shop allowed me to buy some small things for my grandchildren ;0)

Such a lot crammed into this small museum. There is more to it than first meets the eye and the volunteers that work here are so helpful. The history of the silver mines is clearly explained and most interesting. I was trying to identify a flower that I had seen locally by showing them a picture on my camera and... More
