Recently visited the Manor House Museum and thoroughly enjoyed reading about the Witches of Northamptonshire. Love to visit now and again as there is always something different to see.

This museum is well worth a visit, providing a good insight into its social history including the shoe and boot industry of the past, and the setting up of the co-operative society. Two floors of exhibits. Good, clear, explanations of exhibits. Allow 1-2 hours.
