From 18th November 2017 to 14th January 2018 The Hankerton History Group have mounted an excellent exhibition of the history of the village from the Paleolithic to the present.

The exhibition on the mezzanine floor includes photographs, artefacts and memories that give a surprising picture of a small village.
