We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Judy Smythson (nee Worrall)

LEO career began in 1959 when I was interviewed by the man I was to marry, John Smythson. Little did he realise what a momentous interview that would turn out to be! 

I worked as a programmer at Hartree House under Helen Clark, (later Helen Jackson) for about 4 years until I had my first baby. I spent the next 15 years bringing up the children followed by a PGCE course to enable me to become a Maths teacher. I taught at various local schools when I retired to look after John for the last 25 years.
