I'd never heard of this place before, despite knowing the region reasonably well, and was highly delighted to discover it. Entry is free, and so it's reliant on local council funding and donations. It's a credit, then, that it can remain open to the public....More

We especially benefitted from courteous and knowledgeable guidance from the museum staff who enthusiastically related the house’s history, pointed out interesting architectural features and explained some of the many curious artefacts on display.

This attraction is ok at best- the staff are very enthusiastic but the place itself is a bit dull. Not enough celebration of Samuel Crompton and it is a bit empty.

A local gem with lots to see. This place deserves a lot more custom. It is a lot more interesting than some properties held by the large national organisations.
