Richard Jefferies Museum

Richard Jefferies Museum

We are a small museum/arts centre based in an old farmstead which was birthplace to Victorian nature writer Richard Jefferies, complete with outbuildings, gardens, orchard, and even a miniature railway. The site is owned by Swindon Borough Council and run by volunteers for a charity, the Richard Jefferies Museum Trust. With a huge part of our emphasis being on education, we have developed spaces for learning, and currently run educational events for children, families, schools and adults, usually relating to arts and nature. The site also has, of course, the museum itself, dedicated to Jefferies and his thoughts, writings and ideas about the natural world.
