A compilation of archive film showcasing Dorset’s heritage and culture are currently being shown at museums across the county.

The Windrose Rural Media Trust is a charity which aims to preserve and celebrate local community history through its archive film collection featuring life across Dorset, Somerset, and Wiltshire.

It has recently announced the completion of a new project involving the creation and installation of archive film displays at museums in the three counties to enrich the visitor experience.

The Dorset Museums involved in the initiative are Sturminster Newton Museum, Langton Matravers Stone Museum and Corfe Castle Museum.

Trevor Bailey, director of Windrose, said: "Crafted with precision, the exhibits utilise films sourced from the organisation's extensive archive, carefully selected to resonate with the unique interests and themes of each museum.

"‘These cinematic treasures not only enhance the museums' internal exhibits but also provide substantial backup material for talks and presentations delivered by museum staff at various locations."
