The Winsham Web Museum was launched in 2002 as part of the
Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations, after nearly two years in
preparation. Since that time it has become much larger, and attracts visitors from many parts of the world.
In 2016, at the time of the Queen's ninetieth birthday,
it contains some seven thousand items and over
four thousand pictures.
The small rural parish of Winsham is located on the southern
tip of Somerset, where it borders on Devon and Dorset and is
home to about 750 people. It has its roots in Saxon times.
The purpose of the web museum is to provide a digital
archive of its history, record its present and to make this
information easily accessible for the education and pleasure
of all those who visit it, now and in the future.
