One of the many benefits of moving the Heritage Collection into Tithe Place is that it is now almost impossible for residents and visitors to miss catching a glimpse of some aspect of Southam’s History. However, you may not have realised it is now possible to see three different displays, two of them whether our main exhibition room is open or not and one for 24 hours each day.
This is all possible because we now have two very large windows and we are using these to display completely different aspects of local history from that on display inside our Exhibition Room. These windows are in the Atrium passage way on your way to the Library, Café or Activity Room in Tithe Place, and on the outside of the building just on the right of the entrance. Currently this latter window is in a bit of a cul-de-sac walkway but it is easily visible even from across the road.
We are aiming to change the displays in both windows on a 6 – 8 weekly basis (more frequently than our main exhibition) so there should always be something new for you to take a look at.
Our latest display in the Atrium window features the Marton Museum of Country Bygones. See here for additional details of Marton Museum. Take a look at one or both windows next time you are passing.
