Cookworthy Museum of Rural Life Museums
108 Fore Street
In the Old Grammar School you find an historic building, a collection and a local history archive. Each one of these would be worth visiting on its own, but to experience the three is exceptional.
The headmaster's chair and canopy with portrait of Thomas Crispin, founder of the Grammar School, dominates the original panelled school room, complete with the carved initials and names of generations of schoolboys.
The museum is named in honour of William Cookworthy, a Kingsbridgian who became an apothecary in Plymouth and using the china clays of Devon and Cornwall, made the first hard paste English porcelain.
