A large battle scene with hundreds of pieces upstairs. School as it was in days long gone. Military uniforms and famous local identities from yesteryear. Steep stairs and helpful staff. Donations most welcome but admission is free.

This is a lovely museum with lots of interest inside , well worth a visit. The gentleman there on our visit was very helpful. There are a few steep stairways to climb to the upper floors . Not sure if there is a lift !
