This is a lovely small museum. As a grandmother it took me back and made me feel quite old! There are a couple of gift shops and a lovely tea room with gorgeous cakes. All set in the old station.

The museum took a bit of finding as we walked from post office but the old railway platform was amazingly restored, especially thankful on such a rainy day!

A wander back in time through a well thought out museum, enjoyed by all ages ( life in the Victorian era ) a must visit. Whilst there we had a meal at the old Railway station ( all home made), made to order, just the job. Perfect food, perfect setting , perfect price and friendly staff
