Start Bay DisplayThe Duncombe Gallery was refurbished for the 2008 season, funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It provides a flexible space, to be used for mounting themed displays of significance to the South Hams.

'Keep the Home Fires Burning' is the exhibition theme here, remembering the progress of World War I 100 years ago. It aims to explore the impact of the war on the South Hams area and those left behind at home, using the experiences and stories of local people.

The Gallery also houses two computer kiosks which give access to the museum collection of historic local photographs, and will also show images related to current and previous exhibitions.
