Me and my 11 yr old son have been to The Village Church Farm twice now and find it very interesting museum. It has one of the oldest cottage in England that you can walk around, the old farmhouse has plenty of interesting items from the Victorian days.

Step back in time and visit the Village, Church Farm museum. There are lots of things to see and experience from the old farm house, set out like it would have been at the turn of the 19th Century to the old daube house. Fantastic exhibits including a WW2 exhibit and brilliant events from cowboys and Indians to Vikings and more. The tea shop and gift shop are also a great addition and reasonably priced too.

The kids enjoyed the steam engine. The guys there where very passionate about what they where talking about and the kids got a real buzz. The other exhibits where fantastic.

Great time and interesting visit with very friendly passionate staff, many who volunteer and really believe in keeping it open. We went on a ‘normal’ day but there are many events through the year which are well worth attending including the steaming of the traction engine. Check the events Callendar before you go.....some renovating works of the farmhouse being carried so we couldn’t go in - which was a shame but we’ll go back again when it reopens.
