Milverton Archives April update

Milverton is very fortunate that the villagers back in 1923 purchased land to create a recreation ground, which they did with the help of the British Legion on the land off Buttsway.

The very active cricket club created a building in the 1980’s which now belongs to the Trustees of the Recreation Ground. It is a really useful asset, but it comes with responsibilities and running costs.

The Milverton and District Archive hopes to create a home at the Pavilion in the Recreation Ground. We can create not just a home for the history items of our village and surrounding area, but a community hub for the villages.

We hope to hear soon that our lottery grant application has been successful to take the MDA to the next stage with proper storage and to display items.

Open days will be advertised.

A big thank you to all who have supported the new home of the Milverton and District Archives at the Pavilion.

Volunteers are now needed, so if you have an in interest in the history of your village and its surrounding area, please get in touch.
