New Curator for Woodbridge Tide Mill Museum

Woodbridge Tide Mill is happy to announce the appointment of a new Curator. Dr Amy Jane Barnes joins the Mill at an exciting time when, under Chairman John Carrington, it is expanding its appeal to museumgoers through improved communication for both physical and online visitors as well as widening its accessibility to younger visitors.

Amy received her PhD in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester in 2010 and has experience of working in curatorial roles and on exhibition and interpretation projects. She is currently a lecturer in Art History at The Open University.

Woodbridge Tide Mill Charitable Trust Chairman, John Carrington takes up the story “I’m delighted to welcome Amy to the team and excited about what she can contribute. Amy joins at a time when the Mill has recognised that it must embrace as wide an audience as possible. This means adding new displays and organising history, engineering and milling related content to stay fresh. We have more ways to communicate what we have and what we do these days; with video screens showing the machinery in action all the time, offering a visual experience of all three floors to those that can’t progress beyond the ground floor, milling demonstrations, group visits, local group presentations and offering sensory packs for youngsters. We will continue to build our online content by posting these activities where practicable through our website and social media.”
