Saturday 8th September - Walton Heritage Day
This year Walton-on-Thames is holding it's main Heritage Day fair in our most historic part of the shopping district - Bridge Street! We're also adding further excitement to our town-wide event, to hopefully include boat trips from Walton Wharf, abseiling down St Mary's church tower and backstage tours/screenings at the newest Blue Plaque location in town - the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse.
We will be having our usual popular activities like the Dog Show and the fair but are also planning on ending the day with an open-air concert in Bridge Street!
Radio Wey will be there too to keep the music and everything flowing!
So SAVE THE DATE now and plan to enjoy all the amazing things happening in Walton-on-Thames!
Now until 13 October - The Rivers of Runnymede Exhibition
Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede - 24 March to 13 October 2018
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede, takes a look at some of the Borough’s rivers; their history and their impact on the lives of those who live and work on them.
The Borough of Runnymede has a number of rivers, including the Chertsey and Addlestone Bourne, the River Wey and the Abbey River, all of which flow into the Thames within the Borough’s boundaries. However, a quick glance at an old map makes one realise just how many other rivers, tributaries and water run-off ditches have been built over as the Borough’s towns have expanded to meet the demands of population growth.
The exhibition looks at ancient settlements and archaeological finds from the rivers; bridges and ferries; weirs, locks and mills; river industries and leisure pursuits. Some of the finds on display in the exhibition, or elsewhere in the Museum, include a replica of the bronze Chertsey Shield found in Abbey Meads in 1985, a magnificent 10th century Viking sword found in 1981 during gravel extraction at Mixham’s Pit, now part of Penton Hook Marina; a late Bronze Age (c.800-600 BC) socketed axe head cast in bronze and an Iron Age cauldron from about 500 BC, both found at the Charlton pit on the Shepperton Ranges.
Opening Hours: Tuesday-Friday 12.30 to 4.30, Saturday 11 to 4
