Bringing History to the Public

Tolsey Museum, Burford


Housed in the Tudor Market/Court House, the wide-ranging collection illustrates Burford’s social and working culture, including the Town maces, seals and charters; exhibits quaintly recall the trades that flourished here – quarrying, bellfounding, rope-making, brewing -and more, with a famous doll’s house, furnished in style of the Jane Austen period. The Special Exhibition for 2011 will be a private collection of vintage radios.
