The forecast for the weather over the weekend was not too good so I wanted to do something inside. I spotted the Surrey Heath Museum on a previous trip to Camberley, so I thought that I would give it a try.
The museum is located in a council building with access via a lift. There is plenty of parking available and many disabled car parking bays can be found.
It is a small interesting museum, which tells the story of Surrey Heath and the surrounding area over the centuries. Surrey Heath was originally part of Windsor Great Forest, so much of which has been cut down to make way for modern developments over the centuries.
On show were items as varied as a hippopotamus scull dug up from the local area, to small items of pottery, arrow heads, and flints, which have been excavated from the Surrey Heath area, for example Chobham, Camberley, or Woking.
There are regular exhibitions, and I might pop back to see the Spring Cleaning exhibition, which starts on 23rd March, looking at housekeeping as it was 100 years ago.www.surreyheath.gov.uk/leisure/tourism/shm/default.htm
