Funtington Parish in the Past
“Funtington Parish in the Past”
6th – 23rd April 2019
The rich history of the parish of Funtington in neighbouring West Sussex is beautifully illustrated in Emsworth Museum’s first exhibition in 2019. The project started when Geoffrey Boys and others edited a booklet, published in 2000, with the title “Funtington: A History for the Millennium”, containing photographs and memories collected from many different sources.
Alec Peters later added a collection of photographs of his relative Frederick Ewens, the saddler, writer and churchman who lived in the village for more than 100 years. None of these images had previously been displayed and Geoffrey and Alec worked together for about 5 years to produce an excellent and much acclaimed exhibition in West Ashling in August 2017. Some of this material will now be displayed in Emsworth Museum’s David Rudkin Room in April 2019 giving a nostalgic glimpse back to a time when the pace of life was much slower and the countryside a quiet and peaceful place.
The exhibition can be seen on Saturdays and Easter Monday 10.30am - 4.30pm, Sundays 2.30pm - 4.30pm and St George's Day (23rd April) 10am - 2pm.
