Latest Museum booklet published

Minehead Museum trustee Caroline Giddens has just published her latest book, called Education and Schools in Minehead and Alcombe. Thorough research, combined with her own youthful experience of local schools, makes this a fascinating account of education and schools in this area, from Victorian times up to the present day. The author has drawn on old school yearbooks and logbooks, and her own memories will surely strike a chord with those readers who spent their own schooldays in Minehead or Alcombe. You may even find your younger self in one of the class photographs. This book is a valuable contribution to our further understanding of Mineheadís rich social history and sells at £5.00.
