It does not take long to view and enjoy this museum. The oak staircase is amazing and there is lots of local history on view.

In this little medieval square amongst gift shops, tea shops and the local co-op is a stunning piece of history. An incredibly beautiful building well worth a visit. On the National Trust list.
