Based on a private collection of a local shopkeeper, Mr. Tom Hamar, which in 1932, due to its popularity, was re- housed in part of the ground floor of the Town Hall, built in 1780 by the Earl of Powys.

 

 

shrops clunmusSince those days, under the auspices of the Clun Town Trust (Registered Charity 208408) the Museum has grown to fill both floors of the Town Hall and houses a multitude of local historical and agricultural artefacts from the Clun Forest area.

Ground Floor The items on display reflect the diversity of Trades in this once self contained market town - the centre of a large Farming community; Smithy, Wheelwright, Clog maker, Saddler, Tailor, Baker,? Brewer, to name but a few. It also houses a nationally recognized collection of Flints which were traded along the Clun/Clee Ridgeway.

First Floor Here the main theme is local memorabilia of both the First (1914 - 1918) and Second (1939  - 1945) World Wars, including uniforms of all three Armed Forces, Nursing and Women's Land Army, together with our photographic collection and a Digital Photo frame.
Schools, Historical Societies and Clubs are very welcome and special opening times can be arranged with the curator..

Access for all A portable wheelchair ramp is available at the Entrance and a stairlift is installed for easy access to first floor. Our visually impaired visitors are catered for by Audio, Braille, large print guides and pictures together with an illuminated tactile map of Clun Town. We also have a scale tactile model of Clun Castle as it was circa 1300.
