Holsworthy Museum: This small, local history museum is an Aladdin's cave of artefacts and implements relating to an agricultural town's rural past. Life in the countryside was never easy, but over the centuries man invented a wide variety of items to help improve efficiency both in the fields and in the farmhouse or cottage. The variety and usage of the articles in the collection cannot fail to fascinate those interested in England's pastoral history.


In 1999 the museum was completely refurbished and a new entrance porch built giving direct access from Holsworthy's main car park. The collection was re-grouped into themed displays including Holsworthy Town, the local railway, agriculture, medical and apothecary, local craftsmen and the world wars.
