Spent about an hour here looking at all the artefacts and interesting things from years gone by. Well set up and information points not too over wordy. I particularly liked the engines.

Reasonable local museum, a strange eclectic mixture of domestic and military. Little coherent order to it however. Seemed a good place to take children with places to play and a café. No mention of parking on the leaflet we saw, but there seemed to be...More
