  • Gloriously old-fashioned museum with displays of bygone things from the local area, including a display of lavatory bowls. It's nicely maintained, has some imaginative special displays for children and it's free.
  • Cracking museum... great costume... toys and baths! Dressing up fab too... not forgetting the school room
  • Free museum which shows how people used to live in the area. Only took about 30 minutes to see it all. Not something I would go out of my way to visit but if you are in the area I would pop in.
  • Lovely little museum full of interesting items
  • Small but interesting museum. And the grounds are fantastic!
