Kingsbridge Museum SOLD OUT
The original building was built in 1670 as the towns Grammar School and played a hugely important role in town life up until fairly recently.
The museum was opened in 1972 in the old Kingsbridge Grammar School buildings. Mrs Evelyn Northcott persuaded English China Clays Ltd. to rescue the derelict building and found a museum to collect and record the social history of the area.
The Museum was named after William Cookworthy, who was born in Kingsbridge, and who developed the first true hard-paste porcelain ("china").
The Museum is chock full of artefacts from the town's history, are you brave enough to see what comes to life as we turn off the lights and find out what happens at a Night at the Museum?
