Overview
More
The small museum was founded in 1892 but for over a century had its contents locked away and inaccessible except by special appointment or on very rare open days. The St Bridget's Centre was renovated in 2012, and the overhaul of the museum was a key part of the plan, giving it regular opening hours for the first time in its history.The collection contains artefacts discovered on the site from Pre-Norman, Norman, Gothic and Post-Gothic periods. Most notable is the Hog-Back Stone which is testament to the Viking's Christian presence in this location one thousand years ago.

After looking around St. Bridgets Church next door (which is well worth a visit) I was pleasantly surprised by the Museum, although small they do have some interesting artifacts.

This is a local museum, which has some fixed exhibits and from time to time mounts one on a special theme. Could do with more input from local families who could add to the knowledge, but doing well.

A thoroughly enjoyable exhibition. The fact that this was designed and constructed by a local member of the community is commendable ... what an amazing achievement! We didn't go with children which I lament somewhat as all the kids seemed to be having a wonderful...More
