From Saturday 01 April to Tuesday 31 October Gold Hill Museum will be open to visitors between the hours of 10.30a.m. and 4.30p.m. Newly installed in the centre of Room 8 is a case displaying a fascinating range of objects collected by the Heritage Lottery Funded Shaftesbury and the Great War Community Project. Next door the Large Exhibition Room hosts In Praise of Wood, an exploration by Janet Swiss of the multiple uses of timber in human and especially British history. The unique characters of native British trees are illustrated, while hidden in the colourful panels are drawings of 10 woodmice for the child in all of us to find. In Praise of Wood has been kindly sponsored by Peter and Judy Westgate.
