What an amazing little museum located in an old cottage and packed with artefacts. Despite the size, (it as quite small) we spent an hour in there, so much to look at including the haunted room! Well worth visiting.

We really enjoyed our visit to this delightful museum. The exhibits are well displayed and present an interesting picture of the local area. If you like small, local museums, then you will enjoy visiting this one.
