“photographic history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

last year I attended a photographic history of our town, it was being presented by Bleadon Photographic Group, they must have put in a huge effort to put this exhibition together, and it didn't go un noticed.

“Small but well stocked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This small museum has everything to encourage children to take an interest in our history as well as the budding archaeological expert. Food and drink, books gifts and even Punch & Judy here.

“Old Weston still exists here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

It's not big, but neither is Weston Town. But this is the place to find out about Weston's history, form its beginnings as a fishing port. Since the big central library was closed due to the economy, there really is no better place to find out all the town's humble beginnings. A small cottage next door has been carefully restored to it's original state with its fascinating contents giving an insight you can immerse yourself in rather than look at pictures. Perhaps a whole day may be too long, but allow half a day so you won't miss anything. I think there's a cafe though that you can add a light refreshment to round off your visit. Well worth a look! As you may know from my previous reviews, I'm critical and a place has to be good upwards to get a favourable review from me. Give this little place a visit, tucked away at the back of the town it's not easy to find. Don't give up!
