The West Somerset Steam Railway Trust

Curator – Blue Anchor Museum

The West Somerset Steam Railway Trust is a small charity working in support of the West Somerset Railway. The Trust currently has 83 members and around 40 volunteers with a regular annual income of around £20,000. It is principally dependent on subscriptions and donations (many paid by standing order) to support the work of the Trust in running the museums at Blue Anchor and Bishops Lydeard stations and in restoring original Great Western carriages at Williton. A recent National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant is expanding the educational and heritage component of the Museum work at Bishop Lydeard with a particular focus on young people.

The Trust is looking to appoint a volunteer Curator for Blue Anchor Museum. This is a small Museum on the platform at Blue Anchor Station but with potential for development helping to tell the story of the West Somerset Railway, local social and economic history and maintaining the heritage around a Great Western Railway seaside branch line.

If you think you would be interested in this role, then please contact David Baker Board Trustee who has overall responsibility currently for the Museum. David can be contacted either by email at davidbaker687@btinternet.com or on 07776-388744.
