Rural life through the eyes of a village shopkeeper

In 1990 unsold shop stock and related paperwork were found buried beneath decades of dust in outbuildings behind the closed village shop. The find led to a community project which resulted in the opening of the Flintham Museum in May 1999.

Owned and run by volunteers, the museum was a finalist in European of the Year 2001. Since then, the volunteers have gone on to win a number of local and regional awards for innovative community projects using the museum collection combined with different aspects of village history.
