Some beautiful paintings, especially the unique examples of the benefactors of the gallery and the local working people. There was a stained glass exhibition on while we were there - amazing. There was a very good cafe with excellent food and service.

The gallery is spacious and well laid out, particularly the temporary exhibition. However, whoever labelled the latter doesn't know their right from left and there was a dreadfully large number of typos in the permanent labels.
