From Hungerford to Dunblane, from early cars with gun holes to the current epidemic of knife crime, the Museum of Armed Policing, housed in the town’s former police station, has it all.

It has been set up largely by husband and wife team Mark and Debbie Williams, with the help of volunteers, and aims to highlight not only how armed policing has evolved over the years, but to also give an insight into what it’s like to take on the role of being an armed officer in today’s police force.
