EVENTS: Coming up in January

Posted on: 1st January 2016

January is a quiet month but even in the middle of Winter you can enjoy our current exhibition and regular fossil walks:


Currently on display in the Rotunda Gallery is “The Lyme Railway: Axed Fifty Years Ago”. This exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the axing of the rail connection between Axminster and Lyme by Dr Richard Beeching on 27th November 1965. It aims to show visitors what the line was like during its short life from 1903 to 1965, including a newly commissioned painting, The Early Train to Lyme on Cannington Viaduct, by accomplished local transport artist Michael Stride.


There is a full schedule of Fossil walks this month, although and Mary Anning walks, Lyme History walks and Rockpooling walks have finished until the Spring.
