Dave and Stella Mitchell from The Land of Lost Content museum, Craven Arms, have announced its closure on May 30

The Land of Lost Content has been delighting visitors to Craven Arms over 20 'very successful years'.

But the curators of the museum of British culture over the last 100 years say that circumstances beyond their control have forced the closure and they have to vacate the building.

Run by Stella and Dave Mitchell, they announced that they will be closing "forever" on Tuesday, May 30.

"Dave and I are so sad about this," said Stella. "It is entirely against our wishes and out of our control."

Stella said the move was not for the retirement of the couple, who are in their 70s.
