A Plotted History

24th July-16 September

Brampton Museum has over 180 maps and plans of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire in its collection. They are fascinating   historical records and can reveal how a place – a town, a street, and a landscape has changed over time. They can also be incredibly beautiful in their own right.

We do not have the space to show all of the maps to the public. Many of them maps are fragile and cannot be easily handled; some are enormous and difficult to view.

What are our plans for the maps?

We have been lucky enough to secure a Heritage Lottery Grant to digitise the maps. We can then make them accessible online whilst also ensuring their long term preservation by reducing the need to handle the originals. We will also be repacking the maps in archival standard materials.

We also want to explore what we can learn about the town from maps.

We are running a year long volunteer research project focussing on one of our maps. There is a map in the collection which has been annotated with the homes of people who died in the 1849 cholera epidemic in Newcastle. The research project will focus on the individuals who died and the effect their deaths had on their families, and the town itself.

The Forgotten Designers Collection

14 July- 12 September

This is the first exhibition by Sheila in her home town at The Brampton Museum.  Sheila will be celebrating her 82nd Birthday this month and the exhibition aptly marks ‘a life-time of achievement’ – spanning a ‘60 year collection’.  A display showcases a snapshot of her talent and skills.

Why not come along and have a look?  Age has no barriers and neither does art.

The Brampton Museum has scheduled some dates for an ART SALE – starting on 27 July 2017, which is making available a broader range of signed prints and some prints in frames for the public to view and purchase. Any purchase also supports in part the museum and their excellent work and contribution to the creative and art industries.
