Work on new Museum of Somerset reveals intriguing hidden story

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on September 24, 2009 at 12:32 pm

Building works are well underway at Taunton Castle, where the Museum of Somerset will find it’s new home in early 2011.

They’re using a local builder called Henry W Pollard and Sons. While working on the project, renovating the Great Hall, buolding workers discovered a piece of graffiti from the last time the building was tended to in 1934. It turns out, Pollard was the contractor then as well, so the firm is now looking back into its archives to see if they can identify who it was. What will they find on the site in another hundred years, I wonder.

There’s a piece about the development project at the Museum of Somerset and deails of the architects, designers and contracts coming up there on Museum [Insider].
