Take your memories of working in North Devon along to Barnstaple’s Pop-Up Museum at Bridge Chambers on The Strand every Monday and Tuesday throughout April and May.

World of Work is the theme for the current series of memory workshops and museum staff and volunteers are trying to gather recollections of working at some of North Devon’s biggest employers.

This includes Shapland and Petter, the 1950s BT switchboard, the fishing industry or indeed local companies large and small from days past.

On Tuesday, April 24 the focus will be on Brannam’s Pottery, but people are welcome to pop in to the Pop-Up and share their stories about working for others too.

The museum is still keen to collect more memories and photographs to copy of school days and weddings in North Devon.
