This really was a feast for the eyes. So well put together and a wealth of information to devour. We would certainly return as one visit really isn't enough. Well done to the volunteers.

Well presented displays about the local area. We spent an entire afternoon here and were fascinated, particularly enjoying the rooms about local industries and farming. How different life is today!

This is a fantastic little museum, there is so much to see, and with only £2 entry fee you certainly get value for money, well worth a visit.
