Chipping Norton Museum
Chipping Norton museum in Chipping Norton
Chipping Norton Museum is located in the Chipping Norton Co-operative Society Hall dating from the 1880s.
The exhibits are mainly hands-on and illustrate Chipping Norton's development from Saxon Manor to a prosperous wool town plus a section depicting the town in World War II.
You can also find a carved head of a Roman river god unearthed by a local farmer, equipment salvaged from the Victorian wool mill.
A display on Fred Lewis (who founded the Baseball Club in 1920) represents the recreational side of the town and district. This is a fairly unique display of the major summer sport played locally, American Baseball, which was played from 1908 to the 1970s, for many of those years at national level.
