An annual event-the lighting of the Christmas Tree

The Winsham Web Museum was launched in 2002 as part of the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations, after nearly two years in preparation. Since that time it has become much larger, and attracts visitors from many parts of the world. In 2016, at the time of the Queen's ninetieth birthday, it contains some seven thousand items and over four thousand pictures, and its content is continuously reviewed, updated and enlarged.
The small rural parish of Winsham is located on the southern tip of Somerset, where it borders on Devon and Dorset and is home to about 750 people. It has its roots in Saxon times. The purpose of the web museum is to provide a digital archive of its history, record its present and to make this information easily accessible for the education and pleasure of all those who visit it, now and in the future.
