This is a small museum but well worth a visit. Lots of interesting facts and items on show. Underneath is the old prison (gaol) with its own very small exercise yard!!

Located about 200 yards from the castle, this small museum has a number of interesting artefacts. Unfortunately, the Tudor jail was closed for refurbishment which was disappointing. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a good sense of humour. I could not recommend going...More
