Milverton, Somerset

History Group July update

The Milverton District Archives held its first AGM 29 June. Progress continues with creating a permanent home for the Archives. Among the latest additions are the old skittles from The Globe.

 You may have noticed up high on buildings in North Street and Sand Street old street signs. They seem high to us but in the early 1900’s when they were put up, if you were not just walking, folk went about on horseback or in a carriage! A Mr Young paid for them and had them put up. The Silver Street one is missing, rumour has it that it languishes in someone’s garden.

The next History Group meeting will be in September after the summer break.
