Local History

Join us at Bewdley Museum as we take an in-depth look at the local history of this Georgian town. Through practical activities and walks around, pupils will be able to compare Bewdley with their own local area.

There will be an opportunity to look at  local trades , buildings and the magnificent Telford bridge. If required, information about other forms of transport, e.g. Canals, can be covered.
