This facility is next to the paying car park and opposite The Meare. It has a cafe but the main attraction is the extensive market of collectibles and other odds and ends. It’s an essential part of a short visit to this charming village.

After our lunch at the Kitchen we strolled into the adjoining Emporium. Many interesting items on display. I could spend a long time here looking through the various books, paintings, ornaments, etc.

We didn't intend to visit this but as we were parked next door we went into the antique shop. Interesting range of items including a couple of collectable sections and a reasonable size shop. Didn't spend long

An antiques shop maybe or brick a brac in my view. Prices seem a little inconsistent but some interesting stock.

My friend picked up a great coffee table for less than £20! My children loved the Star Wars collection. Always got great bargains here!
