This is a small gem of a museum at the bottom of Town street. The WW1 displays of locals who fought in it is excellent. There is also other displays and artifacts of Horsforth its people and its achievments.

If there were a museum for museums this place would be in it, but in the dusty old store room. More of a collection of donated memorabilia - seen better at a car boot sale. I dare say there's a gem or two in there,...More
