Thank you for your review dollycrag. The museum is run entirely by hard working, enthusiastic volunteers and it gives us all a great deal of pleasure to receive a review like this. We try hard to ensure everyone enjoys their visit whatever their age.

This is a lovely little museum with lots of interesting local history information and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. However, despite its small size it packs a punch with its Whittle display which now has 2 jet engines.
