The Folly Museum in Settle opened for its new season this week with two temporary exhibitions.

Victoria Cave Re-Visited ran last season but was a great success and a rare oppurtunity for people to see some of the amazing finds from the cave, so the museum has decided to continue it for the first half of this season.

The top floor of the Folly, will feature an exhibition called Climb Up To The Moor: Paintings by Judith Bromley and Robert Nicholls. Judith Bromley will give a talk at the Folly on May 18 to tell the story of the exhibition as well as run a family workshop on Thursday May 30 adding to a moorland floor installation.

The permanent railway exhibition at the museum in Chapel Street has also been revamped.

New boards and re organised display have been provided with the help of the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Railway and work by Nigel Mussett.

On April 13 the exhibition will be formally opened and Nigel Musssett will follow this with a talk entitled Settle-Carlisle Railway: Busting the Myths’.

Tickets for the opening and talk, are £6 and can be purchased by phoning 01729 822893.
