You will be amazed at the sheer number of different items that were made of Bakelite - everything from ashtrays to bicycles! And all of them come with the typical style of the era - see how your ancestors lived!
Please give your support for this wonderful museum, put together by Patrick Cook in an old mill on the western edge of Williton (past St Peter's Church). Although this weekend is free, Patrick and the Bakelite Museum need your support. He has been told that he must make some expensive improvements to the mill to cater for overweight visitors (Health & Safety of course), the mill not having originally been designed to cater for the less nimble amongst us. The idea is that you come and see how fantastic the collection is - and then go away and tell your friends all about it!
While you are there, don't forget the tasty cream teas that they serve up - with home made jam and fresh Somerset cream! Worth the visit alone - and ample reward for the short and pleasant walk to the mill.
