A private tour of Dorset County Museum’s current exhibition, A Dorset Woman at War, is taking place on Wednesday, September 17.

The tour will be led by one of the exhibition’s curators, Dr Peter Down.

The tour is a great opportunity to see the exhibition up close and hear the story of a remarkable Dorset woman, Mabel St Clair Stobart, pictured, who took her medical team to the Serbian front line in 1915.

Following the tour, a continental breakfast will be provided in the museum’s tea room.

The tour starts at 8.45am on Wednesday, September 17 and tickets cost £12.50. There are a limited number of spaces available and places must be booked in advance.

For further information and to book tickets phone the Museum Shop on 01305 756827. More information on the exhibition and other events at the museum can be found at dorsetcountymuseum.org
