  • Very interesting museum of canal related things, from the local history to a broader canal background. Kids can take the free scavenger hunt finding exhibits and details, adults can go back in time to when the canal was king. Lovely place to stop off for a coffee or ice cream whilst watching the locks and walking to the tunnel entrance.
  • Small but what a fabulous collection. Always worth a visit. Please note the car park is a coin only pay to stay
  • A very good place to visit come and see vilage at war a whole vilage at war next year reactment grips all over the place and it's good to see a lot of the bout people join in lots tosee and do there
  • Great venue to visit by boat! Thanks go to Steph for allowing me to Moor on the Museum mooring. The Museum and Cafe have a very happy and friendly staff!
  • I enjoyed it very much. Only two problems: one of the signs was badly written and it wasn't clear where to stop for one of the stations on the audio tour.
