This is a small museum, with only one main display room, but it is well presented with an eclectic range of artefacts. The fragments of a medieval painted wall (rescued from other premises) are particularly well displayed with an audiovisual guide.

What a pleasant surprise this small local museum is. Presentation from the moment you meet Sergeant Harris at the entrance to the end of the walk through the fashion exhibition is excellent. Well worth a visit.

A lovely find. Fascinating and diverse museum with incredibly helpful staff. If you are researching a topic, give them a ring and they'll get things from the archive from you! Well worth a visit.
