WELCOME TO EMSWORTH MUSEUM
Welcome to the
website of the Emsworth
Maritime and Historical
Trust, who administer
and run the
The Museum is dedicated to telling the story of Emsworth; its people, industries triumphs and tragedies.
Famous people have lived and visited the town, and it became famous, or infamous, for the incident of the poisoned oyster that killed the Dean of Winchester. The oyster industry boomed in the late 1800s but was destroyed by the one incident; the story is told in its own small gallery within the Museum.
P.G. Wodehouse will be forever linked to Emsworth through his stories of Lord Emsworth and the Empress of Blandings, which grew in his imagination while he lived in Emsworth.
