Faversham Heritage Hub is an exciting new collaboration bringing Faversham museums together. Incorporating two exhibition areas, reading room and archive storage. At the heart of our town - a place for residents and visitors alike to discover our geography and history; enabling better orientation to the hidden treasures of Faversham. 

We have already held a number of exciting exhibitions.  Our tribute to the Faversham men who gave their lives in WW1 was marked by the Commemorative Bunting Project.  363 individual pieces of bunting loving designed and made by members of the local community.

Faversham Magna Carta Legacy

The Doddington Library

Work is currently underway to re-home The Doddington Parochial Library in the Reading Room at 12 Market Place.  This is a unique collection, founded under the will of the late Reverend Daniel Somerscales, with volumes dating from 1501 to the 1750's.  It is one of the few ancient libraries of this kind to have survived and consists of around 400 volumes, with mainly theological works but including 17th and 18th Century additions of medical, natural history and geographical texts.  

The books will be made available to researchers and local people in the Reading Room by appointment.  Full details coming soon.
