Mapping Holderness History – Hedon Museum

HEDON MUSEUM starts its 2013 programme on Wednesday 6th February. A new exhibition will reveal a collection of old ordnance survey maps of the Holderness area dating from the 1890’s through to the 1930’s.

The maps were formerly kept at the Yorkshire Water Museum but will now be available for display and research purposes at the Hedon Museum.

We caught up with the Museum volunteers on Monday morning as they were still setting up the exhibition room in readiness for the opening next week, but they were keen to show us some of the maps they would be using.

The Hedon Museum Society is the charitable organisation that brings together the volunteers who run the museum, which is open every Saturday and Wednesday from 10am – 4pm starting from Wednesday 6th February (refreshments available) until Wednesday 6th March 2013.

Note: The Museum is found behind Hedon’s ancient Town Hall which is reached via Watmough’s Arcade from the West, George Street from the North, or via Iveson Close car park from the East.
