From Village to Town: Weston-super-Mare’s Built Heritage

8 February – 9 May 2020

 

 

 

 

This exhibition brings together objects, images and film to tell the story of Weston-super-Mare’s architectural development over the past 250 years. It expands on Historic England’s new publication ‘Weston-super-Mare: The Town and its Seaside Heritage’.

The exhibition celebrates a complex and remarkable heritage which reflects Weston’s transformation from a small village to a busy seaside resort.

‘From Village to Town’ has been created by the South West Heritage Trust in partnership with North Somerset Council and Historic England.
