The Museum is also featuring a display of a variety of pots made at the Winchcombe Pottery. On display is one large multi-purpose bowl made in the late nineteenth or early twentieth centuries, when the pottery was owned by the Beckett family and called Greet Potteries.
There is a folder of relevant magazine articles, newspaper cuttings and photographs if you would like to research the Pottery and its potters in more depth.
Come and admire the craftsmanship of one of our most successful local industries.
Over the centuries there have been numerous schools in the town.
The earliest dates from 1521 which was founded at the Abbey, which became the King's School and later moved to Jacobean House.
Chandos Grammar School started in Chandos Street and later merged with the King's School.
Now we have the Winchcombe Abbey Church of England Primary School and Winchcombe School that caters for secondary education.
The Museum has numerous scrap books showing events and notable occasions at the primary school where local residents may well recognise themselves when they were much younger.
