A Glimpse into the History of Westbourne
17th July - 5th September 2021

This Exhibition includes old maps as well as
photographs of the shops, businesses and
watermills that have long disappeared

Initially shown for one day in the Village Hall in Westbourne in January 2020 this exhibition of historical photographs, maps and documents includes a wealth of data and facts on the village of Westbourne in times past. The attractive and nostalgic items on display have been assembled by members of the Westbourne Local History Group who have carried out extensive research into the history of the village. Of particular interest is a survey and map from 1640, a map from 1770 with some street names and early 1900s Property Sale Catalogues. Details of Gravestone Memorials in the Churchyard and the 1973 Westbourne Bonfire programme also feature. Water Mills and shops and businesses that have long disappeared are topics currently being researched and the group would like to see any relevant information or pictures that you have that will add to the story.

Open Saturdays 10.30am - 4.30pm
August Bank Holiday Monday 10.30am - 4.30pm
Sundays 2.30pm - 4.30pm
