The Museum is very small, and will be seen fairly quickly, but can be seen as part of the Manor visit as it houses the ticket office. The barn explains the history of the stones and surrounding area, plus displaying several artefacts.

Being members of the National Trust entry was free so it was a no brainer to see the exhibits, very interesting and well wort a visit though I felt £11.00 was a bit expensive if you had to pay.

This Museum is a National Trust property and is well worth looking at before you explore the stone circles. In here you will find a lot of displays of artifacts found in and around the stone circles. It gives you some understanding of what it...More
