This picturesque village lies on the River Avon and was the birthplace of Charles Chubb (1779-1845) who first patented the ubiquitous Chubb lock. A local doll museum has a remarkable collection of both wax and bisque dolls from around Europe, including a 19th century doll’s dress from the family of Lord Nelson.
