After a history of poor financial management, 18 months ago the Trust was facing insolvency. Today, after a sterling effort from a new board of Trustees, staff & volunteers, the 'red mark' at the Charities Commission was finally removed. A big thank you to all involved. ... See MoreSee Less

I met a person who thought cleaning Victoria Cross graves involved a bucket and a brush. As you will see it's a bit more complex than that. And we may be carrying many gallons of water too! ... See MoreSee Less

It is with some disappointment that we have had to take the decision to fully close the Ashworth Barracks Museum to both the public and staff as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Safety of you and our people are uppermost in our thoughts and because of this the decision has been taken and we we will not reopen at the current site.

This is a big thank you to all who support us at Cedar Road Balby and a call out for you to continue to watch this space as we expand our displays to new venues once we have got through this crisis.

The page will remain open and please feel free to post or ask questions as we will continue to monitor. You can still support us and the trust by attending our new venues in the future as well as any fund raising to keep us afloat financially.

Once again a huge thank you from all of the Staff at the Museum.
