Worcestershire County Museum Museums
Hartlebury Castle, Hartlebury
WORCESTERSHIRE COUNTY MUSEUM IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED. THE FIRST STAGE OF THE MUSEUM'S RE-OPENING WILL BE IN JULY OF 2005.
Hartlebury Castle - for over a thousand years a residence of the Bishops of Worcester and now home to Worcestershire's County Museum.
The Bromsgrove Guild began in the late 19th century as an Arts & Crafts movement group. They manufactured objects in many media - metal, wood, plaster, bronze, tapestry and glass. The Guild survived until the early 1960s - far longer than other Arts & Crafts companies such as that of William Morris. The Guild's influence was widespread; one of their members was lost en route to the USA sailing on the ill-fated RMS Titanic. Perhaps the Guild's most famous objects - certainly those most seen by the public - are the main gates of Buckingham Palace.
