Uncovering Battle’s past

A new joint exhibition will shed fascinating light on how Battle has changed over the years.

Battle Photographic Society has joined forces with the Battle and District Historical Society and the Battle Museum of Local History to hold a photographic print Exhibition entitled “Then and Now”

It takes place at Battle Library, 7 Market Square opposite the Fire Station from March 21 to April 18.

Battle and District Historical Society and the Battle Museum of Local History are providing photographs of Battle in bygone years.

These will be paired with prints specifically photographed by many Battle Photographic Society members to show the same locations as they are today.

Some shops in the High Street have retained the same façade whilst adapting the building for modern use; other sites have changed completely. The paired photographs will be displayed side by side in the Library.

Everyone is welcome to visit this fascinating Exhibition and entry will be free.

The Library is open from Tuesday to Saturday between 09:30 and 17:00 hours (to 18:30 hours on Tuesdays and Fridays).
