Hayfield Lodge.jpg

This exhibition is the digital version of a physical exhibition run at Emsworth Museum in 2017. The exhibition was researched and hosted by Clive Pugh a local histrorian and enthusiastic supported of Emsworth Museum.

This exhibition is the first digital exhibition to be hosted by Emsworth Museum with the expectation that there will be many more to come capturing the legacy of physical exhibitions and turning the museum's artifacts into stories.

Pycroft's Brickyard


The information in the short exhibition has been taken from one of the very many folders sitting on the shelves of Emsworth Museum. At the heart of the folder are  photographs taken by a Mr. J.P. Cole. Mr Cole donated the photographs to the museum in 1995 not long after the last bricks were produced in the summer of 1990. 

The collection of photographs were entitled "The Workings of a Brickworks at Hayling Island" and each of the photgraphs  annotated to show the progress through a season of brickmaking
