  • Great local history museum in the centre of Uppermill. Although there are only two galleries downstairs and one up you get a very condensed history of the area in the space that is available. Your only going to be spending around an hour in here but it's well worth a visit. The only downside I found was as there is a charge to enter the museum this doesn't seem to be easy to find out much it will cost from the website and it didn't seem to be posted on the door or at the desk where you pay. This seems to be the standard with most museums now (even free ones seem not to state that it's free on the homepage most of the time). It's £3 adult & £2 concessionary and I believe that do a family ticket for about £6 so the cost is only nominal. Overall this is a great place visit with very helpful staff and fully accessible to the disabled on all levels.
  • Looks nice from the outside. Never been in. Parkings a pain mind.

  • Not a great deal to see inside but they do a lot of history talks here ,plus the locals handicrafts are on display , and you can cruise on the barge
