DIGGING UP THE PAST – THE CIVIL WAR THAT SPLIT THE EDEN VALLEY 1642 – 1660

A fascinating exhibition, curated by Claire Donithorn, telling the story of the English Civil War in the Eden Valley and inspired by a donation of artefacts discovered by a metal detectorist at Starborough Castle. Visitors can decide whether they would have been a Cavalier or a Roundhead after reading about the effects of the civil war on local communities and great houses.

CRESTED CHINA – A POTTED HISTORY

A delightful display, curated by Joan Varley, of a wide variety of early 20th century small china objects featuring the Edenbridge Crest with some stamped ‘Made for the Chronicle Office Edenbridge’. A swan, an elephant, a lighthouse, and a WW1 tank are just a few examples from an eclectic collection loaned to the museum by local resident Colin Fairman.

THE MANOR HOUSE OF DELAWARE

A model of the Manor House of Delaware is now on display at the museum. Owned by the Seyliard family who feature in the Civil War exhibition.

WESTERHAM AND EATONBRIDGE HUNDRED

Also a map of Westerham and Eatonbridge Hundred, 1797-1801 is now on display in the entrance to the museum. See if you can identify where you live now.

We are pleased to announce that the Museum has appointed Charlotte Moon, as an Education and Community Project Officer, a valuable asset for the future of the Eden Valley Museum.

Eden Valley Museum, Church House, 72 High Street, Edenbridge

Open Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 4.30pm and Thursday and Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm, Sundays (June, July and August) 2 to 4.30pm. Other days by appointment.

What are the stories behind the names on your war memorial?
We need your help.
The Eden Valley museum wishes to mount an exhibition in 2018 based on research into the names on the First World War memorials from all over the district.
Would you like to take part in this project?
We are seeking volunteers to work together to discover more about the people behind the names.

Have you thought of joining?

This year the Eden Valley Museum is celebrating its tenth anniversary and is making a big push to encourage local residents to become members and support this unique local attraction. Individual membership is £10 per year, family membership is £20, and youngsters (under 18yrs) can become members for as little as £2.50 per year. If you run a business, why not consider Corporate Membership at £75 per year.  Or perhaps you’d just like to make a one-off donation as a 10th birthday present – please make cheques payable to the Eden Valley Museum Trust and send them to: The Treasurer, Eden Valley Museum, Church House, 72 High Street, Edenbridge TN8 5AR

 

In 1995, for an exhibition to celebrate one hundred years of parish Councils, organised by the Edenbridge and District Historical Society, a wealth of material was collected. many of the one thousand three hundred visitors expressed their desire that this collection should have a permanent home. Thus the idea of a museum was born.

A friendly welcome to the visitors of Eden Valley Museum

The museum is the culmination of five years work by a large group of local people who have enthusiastically given their time and skills to research, collect, catalogue, build the galleries and generally assist in its formation.

Within Doggetts you can observe the cricket ball steamer at work and learn about the skill of cricket ball making practised for over 200 years in Chiddingstone Causeway by the Duke family.
