A charming Georgian building, built as a workhouse in 1764, now filled with a rich variety of displays and a regular and varied exhibitions programme.
Step into a bygone age and experience the charm and harsh reality of life in the workhouse when children worked from dawn to dusk making watch parts.
Find unusual presents in our shop. Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in our cosy coffee area or outside in the sunny courtyard and beautiful walled Herb Garden.
Relax in the aromatic walled Herb Garden featuring herbs and old-fashioned roses, and stroll through the woodland walk in the tranquil South Garden.
