2020Vision virtual exhibition now OPEN!
The 2020Vision team are proud to present their virtual exhibition of the photos of Bishop's Waltham collected in 2020. As well as nearly 100 featured images, many more superb photos can be accessed from the website under 'All Photos'. They are well worth viewing to give a picture of everyday life in Bishop's Waltham in an extraordinary year. The images have now been passed on to Bishop's Waltham Museum Trust for future preservation.

English Heritage works at the Palace
English Heritage have been busy at Bishop's Waltham Palace in 2020! The beginning of lockdown also saw the start of the big conservation works on the perimeter walls and ivy removal on the towers. The whole place is looking really good and ready for the big push in 2021. See the November newsletter for more information. The museum was not forgotten and we have now got new heating!
