Upstairs, there is an impressive museum of local finds - again, put together by local... More

Visited here on one of their open days, its a very quirky little place, rich with history. Lots of little unknown facts - for example the road by the side of it was once a stream! Worth a visit, lovely volunteers too.

An interesting little museum, full of a miscellany of interesting objects. Well worth a visit. Lots of different rooms house artifacts from many different eras.

This extraordinary building is just a tiny remnant of what was a large sprawling place, with Royal visitors and some sort of hospital service for lepers and the like. Pilgrims, travellers, crusaders, scholars, clerics, all stayed here. The rooms are extraordinary and full of interesting local artefacts, and a human skull.
