Sutton & Wawne Museum - 25 Church St - Sutton-on-Hull - HU7 4TL
This lovely Old School in which the museum is housed was originally a National Church of England School for Sutton and Stoneferry and was built 160 years ago in 1859 and closed in 1977. About 20 years later it opened as a museum and educational centre for the villages of Sutton and Wawne. Entirely run by a team of willing volunteers it is now regarded as one of the best history centres in the area.
Sources available include the school admission registers dating back to 1876 and a vast selection of indexed photos and slide collections dating from the 1890's, which are just two of the valuable sources available for people researching their family history, which is now a core part of our work.
Once again a selection of St. James Parish birth, marriage and death Registers, kindly loaned to us by the Treasure House in Beverley, will be available for scrutiny in the museum on both Friday and Saturday
Brooklands Photographic Society will again exhibit prints from their major 2019 Exhibition and will be available to purchase if required.
This website is an ongoing development and the information and photographs included has been produced and provided by volunteers. If you notice any errors or omissions please visit our contact page and let us know. The site will then be updated accordingly. Thank you.
