I can only endorse this museum as well.
They helped me with some family research. The man who set up the
museum in the seventies was looking for a blacksmith's forge to
recreate in the museum and hoped to find my GG x3 old forge in nearby
Bewholme, it had gone by then, but was still in living memory, which
was very touching for me to hear.

The Hornsea & District Heritage computer Archive now has 2000
photographs of Hornsea and the surrounding villages and the people
who lived there.
It is in the shop at the North Holderness Museum of Village Life
( Hornsea Museum ) in Newbegin, Hornsea and is free to use.
Copies of many of the photos can be ordered at a minimal cost.
The Museum has recently been extended with a new section featuring
its Hornsea Pottery collection.
They have also produced a series of lottery funded DVDs in which
elderly local residents give their reminicences of times past in
Hornsea. these can be viewed free in the Museum and are also
available to buy.
Withernsea Lighthouse Museum and Hedon Museum have been a part of
this project and have a similar series of DVDs for their own areas.
