The Museum re-opened in August 2017 after a major refurbishment to house new displays and interpretations of the Museum’s collection of artefacts, photographs and documents.
In the long term it is hoped to apply for grant funding in order to create within the new museum layout a flexible display area which can be altered on a more regular basis, to reflect, for instance, seasons, festivals, anniversaries, and notable local characters.
More information and photos will be added to this page shortly so please keep visiting.

The museum’s collection of artefacts, photographs and documents provide a rich resource for displays created by CHS members to commemorate special events and highlight the Museum’s collection.
World War 1 Exhibition 2014
The CHS Exhibition featuring the memories & photos of the people of Castleton during World War 1 was opened on August 1st by Mary Bagley of PDNPA & Peter Harrison of the CHS. This project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and gathered together a varied collection of material about the village during the war.
Anyone who was not able to see the exhibition or would like to see it again can browse through the posters via this link Castleton’s Men at War.
The children of Castleton Primary School made a contribution to the exhibition with their own work, shown below, inspired by the theme of ‘Poppies’.
