Local History Detectives: Wellworthy and Our Town

If you’re a Lymington Library user, you may have spotted an exhibition called Wellworthy & Our Town. This is the result of a recent project with young people.

Local History Detectives was a 6-week after school project for youngsters in Years 6 and 7. Working with both the Library and the Museum, they learned about researching the past using primary and secondary sources of information, how we care for historic collections, and the different ways we present the past to visitors.  

The young historians curated the exhibition themselves, displaying artefacts from the Museum’s collections. Wellworthy & Our Town is on display at Lymington Library throughout August.
