This is not oneo to be missed. I found this to be so interesting I could have spent all day in there. Plenty of factual information about the local village in regards to the attack of the plaque on the village. A must visit!

Museum is larger inside than it looks from outside. Full of really interesting facts about the village. Lots of personal information about villagers in the war as well as industries from the village and area. Excellent information and short video about the plague years.

Very interesting display and information regarding the plague which hit this part of England. Also there is a display of WW1 pictures and historical facts in relation to local people who fought in the war. A great place to spend an hour or two

Great video to start the tour, stuffed full of facts about the plague, with a couple of side displays about the great war and the local shoemakers Well worth an hour or so of your time.

This is a great little museum. I know it's run by volunteers, but they are so old and so disorganised. They had run out of leaflets for the walk around the village and didn't know where to find anymore. This was at half term when...More

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. We allow dogs into the museum if they can be carried. Otherwise they can be tied up outside with a bowl of water.

Sorry but have no idea on this. As it`s staffed by volunteers, I would think that there is a good chance that it will be open, but please check with the venue before travelling.
