The time has come to dismantle the photography window display and return the cameras to their owners. Special thanks to Peter Bland, the SW Photography School, Chris Mansfield and Peter Best for kindly loaning their cameras to the museum, and to Celia Jones for generously sponsoring the display.

The new window display  features Miss F Hext, the focus of a Bright Sparks Project sponsored by FEAST and the Cornwall Museums Partnership. Miss Hext, a philanthropist who moved to Lostwithiel in the mid-18th century is possibly most renowned for her privately published book,'Memorials of Lostwithiel and Restormel,' a copy of which is on display in the museum.
