Our new temporary exhibition for the 2021 season is "Market Gardening in Topsham".

From Victorian times until the 1950s, families in London and elsewhere were linked to Topsham through the food they put on their plates every day.  Fields and orchards were planted with rhubarb, asparagus, cabbages, strawberries, gooseberries, raspberries, apples and plums.  Visit the exhibiton and meet the men, women and children who planted, picked and packed to feed hungry mouths elsewhere.

The Illustration is the Pyne apple.
