The Richard Jefferies Museum at Coate Water, Swindon, now has a tearoom.
According to the museum website, it is open on Sundays from 2 to 5pm and on Mondays from 10am to 5pm. It also advertises musical Mondays for toddlers and after-school play.
One of the museum trustees, Mike Pringle, told This is Wiltshire:
“Those people who know about Jefferies, know how inspiring his love of nature is and that is what the place is all about. What we want is for more people to discover this well-hidden Swindon treasure and enjoy it for themselves. We hope that more events and facilities like a tearoom will make a big difference.”You can read more about Richard Jefferies and Coate in a guest post on this blog by Rebecca Welshman.
