Gallery Exhibitions
Times and dates vary for exhibitions
Our gallery space is small bit perfectly formed (at least we think so). We hold ever-changing exhibitions in there, with everything from arts or crafts, to bands, installations, poetry 'happenings', or other things of interest relating to the museum or Richard Jefferies.
Current exhibition is a wonderful and eclectic collection of art under the theme of 'Unfrequented Paths'.
