    A little bit of Weymouth Museum has found its way to Weymouth Library as part of their “Weymouth-on-sea” writer in-residence programme.
    It is particularly good to have the model of the "Tony Vandervell" on display in this 150th anniversary year of Weymouth Lifeboat. She was in service from 1976 to 1999 and was the second longest serving Weymouth lifeboat.

    Talking of assets, does anyone know the whereabouts of the elaborate 1930 working model of the Town Bridge. I can't imagine anyone would have destroyed it.

    we have such fondness for all the lifeboats over the ages, I remember admiring the Tony Vandervell...with my Grandparents, and Great Aunt.. now no longer here.. time marches on.. but very glad to know that throughout the RNLI is there.. and will be when I am no more.

    Nice to see the year (1965) on the poster. I'm a stickler for dating pictures.

    Thanks Weymouth Museum - We need a “crowd” scene of people who are as passionate as us about the dig - it will only be an hour or so. Please come along if you can 🙂

    Thank you SO much everyone who turned up for the making of our film ! Amazing turnout with banners and everything ! It shows the strength of feeling in our town for this dig to take place ! Peter Lythgoe of Zzipp Media deserves some kind of award for all he does supporting our town and without him there would be no film so grateful thanks to him! Mark Hobden aka Richard Wiseman for coming down specifically to do this for us. As soon as the film is ready to view we will post on here and then it will wing its way to Dan Snow and as many other people who we can think of . Have a lovely rest of the weekend and THANK YOU all again xx

    With lots of sunshine forecast for the half-term week ahead, it would seem to a perfect time for a first visit of the year to our biggest heritage attraction.Don't forget we are open for business from Saturday 16th February for the start of our 2019 season.

    Please note we now offer an Annual Pass for all visitors for the same price as a normal admission. This means one adult can come in to the Fort for as many times as they wish during the 12 month validity period for £8 while a family of four (2 adults & 2 children) can do the same for just £18. This represents fantastic value when compared to other attractions.🥰
