The History of the Museum

1986 until the present day

The museum was first opened in March 1986 in the old schoolroom of the Baptist Chapel in New Street and then moved to its present home in 1995. The Museum’s collection began with a large donation of agricultural tools from Mr Tom Pitt of Chadlington, many of which are still on display today. However, over the years, acquisitions have expanded the collections and we now have varied displays of items of local interest. The Museum will gladly accept donations of memorabilia, photographs, and items associated with Chipping Norton its residents and the surrounding area. Financial donations are especially welcome. We regret that due to our collections policy and lack of space, the Museum can only accept  articles associated with Chipping Norton or within a five mile radius of the town.
