The Edward Thomas Study Centre

Welcome to the new Edward Thomas Study Centre at Petersfield Museum

Open to visitors on Wednesdays and Thursdays 10.00 am to 3.30 pm and at other times by arrangement (please see *below).

The Study Centre is open to visitors every Wednesday and Thursday and at other times by arrangement (please see *below).

There is a lot of additional information behind this page. This means there will be several different places to ‘click’ depending on what you would like to look at.

One of the first of these is a searchable list of the current books held in the Study Centre, which is available here.

Currently these books are only available for research and reading on site. In time we expect to be able to develop our facilities and allow for reading at home, research and study loans – but this will not be possible for a while.

There is also a selection of new, used and rare books that may be for sale from the Study Centre from time to time. You may see the latest schedule of such books here and for further details send an email to

If there is a book or other publication not currently held by the Fellowship and which you feel would be a useful addition please let Jeremy Mitchell know – contact details *below.

The Study Centre will also be opened for research, private study or group visits and a booking form is available here. Please provide at least seven days notice to ensure the requested books or papers are available.

*Should you wish to visit at any other time please contact Jeremy Mitchell (email or telephone 01730 267214) in the first instance.

Finally, information for ‘Readers’ and other users of the Study Centre is available here.

How to find us – The study Centre is situated in the Courtyard at Petersfield Museum – next to its excellent Café. The Museum is situated in the centre of town, behind St Peter’s Church and on St Peter’s Road. There are several car parks nearby, there is no parking available on site (bar one disabled parking space) and all car parks are ‘Pay and Display’. For a stay longer than three hours it is suggested that the Festival Hall Car Park is used.
