Description

Batson's Boat is on display outside.

The Batson Museum is a tall white-stone building riddled with bullet holes. It's a late-18th century Tapestry Museum, with an exquisite collection of French tapestries.

History

Part of the Malteux Tapestry. The caption is in Old French, and means BOOM! HEADSHOT!

The centrepiece of the collection is the Malteux Tapestry, smuggled into Malton from France during the Napoleonic era by Quentin Batson, the museum's founder. Batson's hazardous journey by land, sea and the River Kevan is memorialised through his boat, preserved in the museum's courtyard.

The Malteux Tapestry is thought to depict an 11th century zombie outbreak in southern England. Zombies are shown shambling towards the army of the living, only to be struck by arrows to the head and even the eye. Some survivors are portrayed stripping clothes from the dead in order to pimp themselves out with teeth- and claw-proof armour; others are shown in long black tunics and carrying dozens of swords, possibly katanas imported from medieval Japan, in order to wreak havoc on the undead horde.
