             Projects

The Friends are engaged in a range of projects associated with the collections in the Ludlow Town Museum and Shropshire Museums Resource Centre. These may be considered in the following categories:

  • Acquisitions: We have commissioned purchase of prints and conservation of paintings as well as of specimens in the various collections.
  • Buildings: We supported design and construction of the purpose-built, environmentally controlled, Resource Centre in Ludlow for the Shropshire Museums service of Shropshire Council, raising a substantial sum from private and company donations.
  • Cataloguing: We provide financial support to educational projects for school children both at the Museum and in their school
  • Conservation: Recognising damage and undertaking remedial measures to preserve the collections for the future.
  • Digitisation: We support research by individuals, by academic institutions, and ensuring their endeavours are properly recorded and made available to enhance our understanding of Shropshire and its heritage. This includes a substantial grant awarded in 2015 for the digitisation of the geological collections.FISH logo Click here for further details.
