The Cider Museum in Hereford will remain closed until flood damage is repaired and that could take some time. An update posted on their Facebook page yesterday said:


Sadly, the Museum suffered a significant water leak in June, further worsened by recent flash flooding and heavy rain, as a result the display area in the cellars flooded. The level of work now required to remedy the situation means that we cannot currently open the museum to visitors and that the meeting rooms also have to remain closed.

Preparatory work using specialist advisors and equipment will begin in September and this will determine how long the total remediation process will take. Due to the nature of the collection, with a number of large wooden items that cannot be moved, the drying out process must be carried out slowly to prevent further damage and this is before other general water damage can then be made good.

Further updates will be posted as the situation and timings become clearer.

The Cider Museum Trustees and staff would appreciate your patience and understanding at this difficult time.
