Visited this museum recently having seen leaflet at the hotel where we were staying.A small museum situated at the entrance to the former Frenchay Hospital. Crammed with exhibits about the village and the local families. If in the area and you have an hour or so to spare well worth the visit.

This tiny museum is crammed with interesting items of local interest. Situated just inside the grounds of Frenchay Hospital it is manned by volunteers who are friendly & very well informed.

A lovely house in Frenchay Hospital Grounds. Has vast amounts of pictures of the past and great for researching your family if they lived in and around Frenchay. A vital place to be for Frenchay History.
