Museum Opening Times

The museum is very cold at this time of year as it's very difficult to effectively heat the un-insulated Grade II listed interior. So it wouldn't be fair to ask you to join us and shiver.

We'll be open regularly again when the weather warms up next Spring.

In The Footsteps Of Giants: The True Origin Of The Wrekin

Just how was the Wrekin made?

Academics have their own ideas, but Mythstories’ resident storyteller Dez Quarréll knows that two giants were responsible and he has the pictures to prove it. However Geography teacher Steve Cale is ready to go head to head and prove him wrong. Both sides are willing to lay their reputations on the line and compete for your support. Hear them engage in an epic battle to separate fact from myth in a family-friendly part-storytelling, part-illustrated lecture before casting your vote. Only one theory can prevail, which will you chose? ... Suitable for those who wish to uncover the truth, be they 8, 80 or older still.
