Fordingbridge Museum
Housed on two floors of an old granary. Fordingbridge museum’s main source of artefacts came from the late John Shering, who over a period of 30 years accumulated about 9,000 pieces of local history in his attic.

The collection came from a variety of sources such as local shops that had closed, house clearances, cobblers and blacksmith's tools and several hundred photographs.

Also on display are works from local artist Augustus John and a large Victorian' Dolls House.

Over a period of about 30 years the late John Shering and his brother collected a large quantity of artefacts which they housed in a private museum open to the public on request. In 1996 their extensive collection was offered to the town of Fordingbridge.
