Welcome to Wilderspin School

The Old School Canteen is “good to go” and re-opens on Saturday 4 July, with outside seating in the Wilderspin Playground and three rooms in the Museum providing safely distanced tables.

The Museum remains closed while we improve displays and make things as safe as possible for a summer re-opening.
