The 2020 Summer Exhibition
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War this year's Summer Exhibition 'Soldiering On' will reflect village life in WWII and will honour those who served in the conflict.
A smaller exhibition will tell the story of the legendary Porlock Vale Riding School and Captain Tony Collings. Captain Collings was instrumental in founding the Horse of the Year Show and helped found the Badminton Horse Trials, riding in the first event and winning in 1950.
Dovery Manor Museum is a Learning Destination for the Childrens University.
Second World War Project
The Museum needs your help!
75th anniversary of VE Day, Friday May 8th 2020.
Fifteen men from Porlock died in the Second World War, eight from Selworthy and four from Luccombe*.
The Museum seeks the help of anyone with information, materials or photos of the men from our three parishes who died to help us present the fullest possible tribute. We also seek information about the wartime exploits of those who survived, the men who went to war and the women who performed vital tasks in support at home.
