The Summer Exhibition


The 2017 exhibition is named, 'Seas of Change'. In conjunction with The Boat Shed Museum, at Porlock Weir, we carry forward the history of Porlock Weir from 1914 until 1950. The title, Seas of Change, reflects the enormous, and far reaching, social and technological changes of the period.
