Visited with our daughter, son-in-law, 5 year old, 3 year old and baby. Our daughter had booked to see a pirate themed activity for young children. Families sat in 'bubbles' on well spaced out mats, having used hand sanitiser on entrance and the lady taking names wore a face covering so all Covid precautions were being well taken. The one man show was fun for the children to join in with. The storyteller took the time to learn every child's name so he could really engage with them during the show - this was very impressive! There was an action song and an interactive pirate story - it only lasted about 45 minutes but was just right to keep young children engaged. I hope Red House pass on our thanks to the one man theatre production - sorry, i can't remember his name. An enjoyable morning before lunch out.

We called into this museum expecting to at least pay a few pounds for entry so were delighted to find it was free. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to find out information when we asked them. Lots of interesting artifacts and a very good library of photographs from the past.

Free to enter, this is a lovely place to visit. It’s building is big, in mellow red brick, and in the past has been a workhouse and a fusee factory. A fusee is a small chain used in clock and watchmaking. There is an eclectic mix of exhibits, ranging from the prehistoric to ictorian times. There is a small shop. An exhibition room attracts varying displays of art, photography and crafts. The garden is small, but beautifully maintained by volunteers. An hour will allow you to see everything, after which, cross the road to the exquisite priory church, the longest in England, and then stroll the 200 metres to the town High Street.
