LATEST NEWS:  The Gatehouse Museum is NOW CLOSED for Winter.  It has been such a difficult year for the entire country, many charities and organisations that rely on the the tourist £ have struggled to keep afloat, luckily the Gatehouse’s team of volunteers have worked hard to try and remain open as much as possible to raise funds towards the upkeep of the museum and the magnificent building in which it is housed.

On behalf of every one of the volunteers of the Gatehouse Museum and members of the Sheppey Local History Society, thank you for the support that we have received from the numbers of visitors we welcomed in the period from the easing of lockdown until today.  We truly appreciate it.  As for 2021, we have yet to discover what lies ahead, hopefully during the winter break we will get the opportunity to try and catch up on some of the archiving work that we had to put on hold.  This will hopefully enable us to publish some more of our artefacts on a digital platform, bringing Sheppey’s history into the modern era.

We will keep updating our Facebook page during the cold winter months, so please check the links page for the Gatehouse and the Sheppey History pages on Facebook.

Stay Safe

Best wishes
