Flintham Museum

Shop icon Wheelchair access icon

The Flintham Museum looks at rural life through the eyes of a twentieth-century village shopkeeper.

Fred White, Flintham's shop keeper from 1911-1949, was a keen amateur photographer. He bought a camera in 1896 and from then until 1915 when his camera blew over and broke, he photographed people, local events and scenes. In 1990 Fred's glass plate negatives were discovered, buried beneath decades of dust.

To mark the museum's 10th anniversary, we have recently created a weather garden complete with a weather station.
