Swaffham Museum

The David Butters Room

This year the David Butters Room celebrates the Railway and how it changed Swaffham after it arrived in 1847. Passengers travelled to school and work, to holiday destinations, to war. It was closed along with many others during the Beeching cuts in 1968. 

We have dozens of items to see, including models of the trains that would have run on the Swaffham line, posters, railway buttons, a lamp and many photographs. 

The Town model remains on display - a permanent item, and is always popular with adults and children alike.
