The project 'Farming in the Lim Valley' began in 2006. Museum volunteers Graham Davies and Ken Gollop were asked to research the farming scene in Lyme Regis and Uplyme before information was forgotten and documents lost. Over 60 farms past and present were identified and presented in an exhibition of 70 display boards shown in Uplyme and Lyme Regis in 2008.
The articles below are based on some of these researches.

Following the success of this exhibition, the museum team were asked to extend their researches to cover the whole of East Devon. New research was carried out over a 12 month period concentrating on Axminster market and the surrounding parishes in East Devon. This led to the Farming in East Devon exhibition in Axminster in June 2009.
