The Burton at Bideford Museum is always exploring its Collections to reveal interesting local stories.
New and upcoming displays include:
Ackland and Edwards: Two Together is a new temporary display in the Burton Museum looking at the lives of Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards. The display focuses on the time they spent together at Bucks Mills Cabin.
Our Stories: Objects on the move is a project and display currently being co-curated alongside the Women First Project and North Devon Against Domestic Abuse. The Women First Project is a partnership between NDADA, Encompass Southwest and Mind, supporting females who are facing homelessness across Northern Devon, offering support, guidance, advocacy and peer support activities.
This intimate and uplifting display has been sponsored by an ASDA Community Grant.
Leather Trade in Bideford: This new display has been co-curated by the Way of the Wharves and the Burton Curatorial team. The display explores East-the-Water and Bideford’s trade ties to the River Torridge, the sea and local individuals working in the leather trade.
