Our Museum is sited in the old ‘Schoolmaster’s Cottage which is just off the churchyard.


Visitors arriving by car should park at the Community Hall car park and walk up to the church. A path behind the church leads to our museum which is a real treasure trove of the history of the parish.


We open on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Bank Holiday afternoons from 2.30 to 4.30 pm between the 1st of May and the 30th October. If you would like to visit at other times then please contact the curator by E-Mail on (


We have well over 1000 photographs. Our volunteers can help you to locate information or items that may be of particular importance to you. Just ask!


Local refreshments are available at The Green Dragon Public House and at St. Arbucks coffee shop. Both are in the centre of Market Lavington.


Do come and enjoy a visit to our villages and our charming museum. Entrance is free but we do welcome donations which all help to cover our running costs.
