Welcome to the Seavington Web Museum
Welcome to the Seavington Web Museum which has links to the past, present and future of the parishes of Seavington St. Michael and Seavington St. Mary in South Somerset, England.
It is a collection point, historical record and digital archive, much of it created from material donated by residents and relatives of residents past and present.
It is hoped that more people will add to it as old and new experiences come to light. Click on a topic below to take a look.

Thanks to Brian Murless, Somerset industrial Archivist and Michael Harrison, we have been able to find out some more information about the Collar Factory in Seavington St. Michael. Do look at the photos with the article because we would love to identify the people. Please let us know if they are any of your relatives
Sadly Edgar Hawkins passed away just before his 100th birthday. Luckily we had the chance to talk to him about his life in Seavington. Read about it here.
