This is a free to visit museum and gardens. The museum takes about and hour to tour and has some fascinating artifacts and interesting pictures. The gardens are lovely to walk round and is well kept. They also have events throughout the year.

The park this sits in is a favourite with children and dog walker - used constantly by the locals - very friendly. The museum has collections of local artefacts and a range of portraits. Worth a visit if you are nearby
