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. The Museum moved to  its present home in 1995. The Museum was given a large collection of agricultural tools by Mr Tom Pitt from Chadlington, many of which are still on display today. This will be expanded in due course The Museum will gladly accept donations of Chipping Norton memorabilia, photographs, and items associated with Chipping Norton and the surrounding area and its residents. Financial donations are especially welcome. Regretfully the Museum cannot accept  articles not associated with Chipping Norton and outside a five mile radius.
