Witney & District Museum 75 High Street, Witney, Oxfordshire OX28 6JA
This article is to highlight their Heritage Open day on Saturday 8th September between 10.00 and 16.00. The Museum is found close to the junction of the High Street and Witan Way, though the archway marked ‘Bartlett Builder’.
This day is free to all, and will be well worth attending.
Oxfordshire Family History Society advisors will be present to help people find previous generations of their Oxfordshire families. They will be bringing with them various leaflets, booklets & CD’s of registers and masses information on the computers.
During the day the museum will allow access to some of its wealth of material for those interested in local or family history. Among their records they hold the only known surviving register of inmates at Witney Union Workhouse, covering 1839 to 1841, and the Quit-rent rolls showing the owners and occupiers of around 350 properties in Witney, Hailey, Crawley and Curbridge, (1845-1890) with loads more information. There is no need to book.
Access: Wheelchair access only to the ground floor.
This small independent museum is run entirely by volunteers.
Do come and join us there. Contact for the day: 01993 775915
