History

About the Storrington and District Museum

Opened in April 2000 to mark the Millennium, the Museum houses local archaeology, articles from local churches, domestic history, details of local people, their memorabilia, artefacts and articles from the two world wars. The Museum not only covers Storrington, but the surrounding villages of Amberley, Ashington, Bury, Cootham, Parham, Sullington, Thakeham, Washington,  West Chiltington and Wiggonholt.

The Museum has a library of local history books and has access to old maps, census records and welcomes enquiries on village and local family history. There is a regular newsletter for members of the museum (see membership page), a programme of evening talks and summer historical walks and events. The Museum supports local schools with its education programme.

Times Past, the museum’s quarterly magazine

The Museum is run entirely by volunteers and has to raise funds through fund raising, membership and donations to help with its day to day running costs.

Please help the Storrington and District Museum reach its fundraising goal through our Just Giving page or you can “Buy us a Coffee” from the coffee cup on this website, thank you.

We are a Registered Charity under Registration number 1084583.
