Notes For Your Diary At Castlehill Heritage
13th December 2022
Hope you are all managing to keep warm in this bitterly cold weather. At least there is not too much snow so we can get about. I put on several layers so I look like a Michelin man when I go for a walk but at least I stay warm.
At Castlehill we now have a new exhibition which has the title "We've Got Your Measure'".
We have looked at as many ways of measuring as we can think of and looked out any artefacts to go with the ideas. We have old money, ie LSD, old clocks and watches, scales both large and small, some for commercial use.
We also have a double thermometer that was used in WW2 on a meteorological plane, a pump for a diver, baby scales, navigation artefacts for both land and sea. We have looked at ways of estimating wind speed both on land and sea and much more.
We are back to opening three times a week, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, 2 PM until 4 PM. Come along and see what we have.
We are also going to have our Boxing Day mulled wine and mince pies. There will be non alcoholic beverages as well as something for those who dislike mince pies. There will be a simple activity to keep you going, linked to the archaeology section of the exhibition. It is a lovely time for you to meet friends, chat and not worry about who is making the drinks etc.
We will be open on Boxing Day at 2 PM until 4 PM.
We now have several podcasts on our Website which cover a variety of topics so if you are having a coffee break go onto the website at WWW.castletownheritage.co.uk and you will find a link to the podcasts.
That is all for now but keep looking at the website and on our Facebook page for news and information.
Have a lovely Christmas and stay safe and warm.
