The museum is very compact and bijou. It is based in one large room, with a selection of local items of historical interest. Very interesting little place, run on donations.

Visited this lovely little museum. It has packed an interesting collection of objects into a little space. Items range from fossils to slipper baths. Even small children found it of interest.

Interesting to pop into and have a look. Free to go in. Was the town hall at one time, before being demoted to village status.
