Watchet Boat Museum started life as a goods shed built in 1862 as the terminus for the Bristol and Exeter Railway. When the railway was closed, the building was used as a store for shipping companies. In the museum can be seen many different types of flatner, plus nets and other items associated with their use. There are displays of maps, knotwork and boards showing the various uses of withy. There are activities specially designed for children such as the block and tackle where even the smallest child can lift much more than expected. The Museum also has a small shop with items on sale ranging from pocket money to cheque book prices. Many of the items are made by our own Design and Print Department to ensure they meet our exacting standards. Postcards, greetings cards, keyrings, prints, boat plans, mugs and tea towels are just a few examples of the varied stock.
