Lovely little museum, definitely worth a visit if in the area. A nice walk up the river to the water mill too, especially on a sunny day

Most enjoyable visit! We were given a warm welcome and historical guide by the charming lady on duty - who also pointed us to a nearby pub with a 2 for £10 lunch deal! Thank you!
