Woodhall Spa’s Cottage Museum may seem small, but it is one of Lincolnshire’s finest, having literally risen like a Phoenix from the flames since an arson attack in 2011. It was originally “…..the vision of one man, John Wield, over a hundred years ago. He foresaw that one-day people would ask about the origins of the then young Victorian spa community and so set about recording what he could for the future. John had a fascination with the art of photography, one of his many interests, and it is his photographic collection, which forms the basis for today’s Cottage Museum.”
But as well as capturing the village’s fascinating past, the museum hosts a range of special events throughout the summer. Here’s the August programme:
August 3 at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm: Creative Clay – Fantasy Creatures. This is another of our fun-filled children’s event. Come and have fun with different modelling materials. The event is only £3.00 per child and this covers all the materials. Continue reading →
