Work begins at Barnstaple Museum July, 2018

July saw Devon Contractors begin work on the Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon’s much anticipated Long Bridge Wing extension.

The extension will provide new gallery spaces to showcase the museum’s large social history collection, a new education room, storage and work rooms and reception area with shop. A new lift will enable improved access to all areas of the museum.

The project, which is partly funded by HLF, is expected to see the museum reopen in summer 2019.
