“Learnt a lot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Moved to Sheffield in Sep 2012 and have lived around the corner from this little place. Learnt a lot about local history - really interesting.
It was a bit expensive though for the size of the place, but understand they have upkeep to maintain etc.
