The Lorenz Room
Margaret Lorenz was a founder committee member and long-time Museum chair. The Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum has almost 20,000 objects, archives and images and this room has a changing exhibition displaying aspects of local life.
There is also a large dressing-up box for younger visitors to explore, and the round table to try their hand at drawing or lino rubbing.
The current exhibition is ‘Margaret Lorenz: A Head of her Time’ and documents her life, many interests and community activities. After attaining a Mathematics degree, she served in the WRAF. Her teaching career culminated as the Head of Kingsbridge School – the first female head of a comprehensive school in Devon.
