THE fascinating history of a local landmark will be explored in a free exhibition.

The story of St Thomas a Becket Church in Warblington will be the focus of a display at Emsworth Museum.

The exhibition will show how the Saxons built the church in the 10th century and will chart the extension in the 13th century and the modernisation by the Victorians.

Music in the church, the ancient yew tree in the churchyard, church linen, pictures of the stained glass windows and other artefacts will also feature.

The exhibition begins on Easter Saturday, April 7, and is open until April 29.

Opening times are 10.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday and 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Sunday. The museum will open on St George’s Day, April 23, from 10am to 2pm.
