The Churchill and Sarsden Heritage Centre, a great local museum, reopens this Easter with a new focus on local farming history.

The centre, in the village of Churchill’s old church (not the “new” one at the top of the hill!), contains innovative displays, touchscreens and digitised records – but this Easter, it reopens with a new exhibition on the history of farming in the area. This is quite a significant subject, as this locale – as with the Cotswolds as a whole – is a rural one that has relied on sheep and farming for centuries.

Churchill and Sarsden Heritage Centre will be open on Saturdays and Sundays between 2pm and 4.30pm; for sat nav reference, the postcode is OX7 6NA. For more information, see its website.
