    The museum really needs an injection of new blood and probably new money or it will decay quietly. This would be a tragedy for the town.  more »

    When we had followed the brown signs to the museum we were greeted by a lovely man who told us the council had shut them down and they were closed. It looked interesting And all 9 of us where disappointed. If the council closed them they should have removed the signs. A tad annoying. Come on council work it out. !!

    Free entry, lots of interesting things to do with the local history. Helpful staff. Nice place to take a leisurely stroll around. Dogs welcome

    Interesting day out. Even good for those taking a buggy along. Better to go when it's sunny as a lot of outdoor walking.

    A great deal of work has been put into this facility. It presents a detailed and well presented history of the local iron and tinplate industry from start, through its heyday, to its demise.
