Bridgwater Blake Museum
Bridgwater’s Heritage
Founded in 1926, and still in its original building, Bridgwater Museum is situated in a quiet back street of Bridgwater. The museum is housed in the reputed birthplace of Robert Blake, Cromwell’s General-at-Sea. With the collections covering Bridgwater and the surrounding areas, we have fascinating displays waiting for you to discover.
The Museum is established: •	To rescue from loss or destruction the relics of our ancestors. •	To collect, preserve, conserve and to show relics of out history relating (principally but not exclusively) to Bridgwater and it’s immediate surroundings. •	To show visitors that it is not indifferent to its own history. •	To interest visitors in what has happened to Bridgwater since it was granted its first Royal Charter in the reign of King John. •	To give the townspeople a pride in their past. •	To reveal that great events have taken place within the town and adjacent areas and set them in the context of the history of England. •	To honour the lives of great men and woman who have been associated with the town, and, in particular but not exclusively, Robert Blake.
