New Display in Museum.
The Museum have recently put together a new display board to show the history of Braunton Marshes, which are very much in the thoughts of the village due to the damage to the sea wall on Horsey Island.
To go with this display, we have installed a video screen showing an interview with a Conservator explaining how the marshes are drained.
Museum Model Railway.
Come and see what Braunton Railway Station looked like in the 1950's.
We have built a large scale model of the Station area, which can be operated by the public, (costs 20p for 5 minutes !)
There are a lot of photos and drawing to explain where the station was sited, between Caen Street and the Police Station. The site is now occupied by the main village Car Park and Medical Centre.
The Surf Museum building was the Goods Shed and Wensley's Newsagent shop was the Station Masters House.
Free admission to the museum, donations appreciated though.
The Combe Rail Project.
Combe Rail is an exciting new project to establish a community and heritage railway on part of the track-bed of the former Barnstaple and Ilfracombe Railway, between Braunton and Barnstaple. The museum is a supporter of their efforts.
