Winsham Web Museum

The principle role of the Winsham Web Museum is to present the history of the parish for the education, interest and entertainment of the people of Winsham, using the Internet as its main platform. Helpers are needed for involvement in local history projects as well as the recording of current events for posterity. Galleries contain hundreds of photographs and other illustrations, and many thousands of words of text recording the history of many aspects of life in Winsham over a thousand years.  Launched in May 2002, re-presented by a 'Second Edition' in 2009, and by a Diamond Jubilee  Edition in June 2012, and again in 2016,it is believed to be the first village Web Museum in the U.K. It is a British Library Archived site.
