The Spence Arms and Armour Collection

The Spence Bequest has some of the best examples of weaponry in the North of England, if not the country.

His collection spans from the Stone Age to the early 20th Century and includes hundreds of edged weapons and firearms. There are also a unique set of watercolours painted by Spence himself at the Front during the First World War.

Exhibition Officer Chris Young has spent a good degree of time researching and studying this collection and over the years new stories have come to light and are ready to be shared with the community Spence served and loved.
