Current Exhibition: 

2 April – 3 July 2022 

All Fired Up!  

A collaborative exhibition between Essex Fire Museum and Saffron Walden Museum on the history of Essex County Fire Service. 

Along with discovering some of the technological developments which have influenced firefighting, visitors will also be able to discover heroic stories of bravery and the human stories behind some of the major incidents which have occurred in the county’s history. The exhibition also touches upon some of the more obscure aspects of local fire-fighting history, including a troupe of fire-fighting scouts, a famous fire-fighting Vicar and the story of how an obscure family pet caused a local mansion to go up in flames.
