Bewdley Museum

shambles nowAs the most Northerly navigable section of the River Severn, the town of Bewdley holds an important role in the rich history of the Midlands.

Bewdley Museum, located in the heart of the town, provides a fascinating insight into the history and development of the town, the lives of the people and the trades and crafts of the surronding Wyre Forest area.

Most days there are demonstrations of rope and clay-pipe making, often run by volunteers.

Resident artists and crafts people located in the Shambles and other parts of the museum complex are on hand to demonstrate their skills, run workshops for all ages with a lively programme of events during school holidays.

The museum has a very popular and award winning programme of educational activities for schools, some of which are run in conjunction with the local Severn Valley Railway.

The cafe and courtyard area of the museum have direct links to the adjoining Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Gardens and provide a delightful and relaxing haven for visitors.

Bewdley Museum is managed by Wyre Forest District Council and the official website can be viewed by clicking here..
