St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery are uniting with shops in the High Street to reveal what the buildings used to look like. We are delighted with the response from the shop managers, every single shop we approached have said yes to having a poster in their window, helping to create a trail to discover what the shops used to sell and how different they look in 2020 from the wonderful old photos in the St Barbe collection.
Younger Children can collect a free explorer’s sheet from St Barbe (or download from the website https://www.stbarbe-museum.org.uk/whats-on/family.php) – find all the bugs in the shop windows, which one is missing? Then tell our Volunteer on the Welcome Desk and collect a free badge!
Want to know more? Visit St Barbe Museum to find out more about the fascinating history of Lymington, and the surrounding area.
History on the High Street takes place as part of Heritage Open Days 11-20 September 2020.
