Shaftesbury’s Abbey Museum reopens on Monday. The indoor space has been closed since the end of the 2019 season.
Claire Ryley explains how the volunteers have reinvented their displays during lockdown. Now, the history of the Abbey is set against a timeline of UK events.
There’s less about architecture and stones, and more stories about the Abbey’s women. You can also see the statue head which made newspaper headlines when it was excavated in 2019.
