Peter Edwards Museum & Library


*          *         *

The Peter Edwards Museum & Library is the official museum of Essex CCC and dedicated to the memory of Peter Edwards who was the club's Secretary and General Manager from 1979 to 2000.  It was formally opened in 2006 thanks to the kind generosity of Sue Edwards, Peter's wife.

Housed at the The Cloudfm County Ground, New Writtle Street, Chelmsford (behind the club shop) it displays a vast and fascinating collection of photographs, books, equipment, clothing and other memorabilia relating to the club and its players, dating back to the foundation of Essex CCC in 1876.  It is open on all match days (apart from T20 night matches) until shortly after the tea interval and at other times by prior appointment. Admission is free so please look in to the museum when you next attend a match at Chelmsford.
