This place is tiny. It is free but survives on donations. Interesting for 10 - 15 minutes. You get to see a copy of the Shuttleworth Special and an original P50. Some train stuff as well. Friendly people.

Micro museum run by enthusiastic volunteers. OK if passing but don't make a special trip, and it's closed most of the time anyway. They try hard with limited resources.

Tiny and jam-packed with artefacts but the P50, the smallest road-legal car in the world is the real star of this museum. Be aware of opening times to save a wasted journey.
