Any publications or other relevant material about the collection / history of the organisation?
Our Museum is the original Porthcawl Police Station, it is a Victorian grade 11 listed building, which most of its original effects. We have three cells, and we have a cell that is now a toilet, but we have been told it was originally used to hold children, this has not yet be validated. Added to this the Officers house and sleeping quarters for the police are still very much in their original state.
