Brass Rubbing at the Westgate

The Westgate Museum houses a small collection of replica Hampshire medieval church brasses.

After seeing the originals, you can have a go at making your own brass rubbing to take away as a souvenir of your visit.

You will be given an information sheet which will tell you all about the brass you have rubbed, and translate any inscription.
