Our central theme is the terrible outbreak of Bubonic Plague in 1665-6, when the villagers quarantined themselves and halted the spread of the disease. The world wide spread of plague is covered, and also the recovery, with the development of local industries.

A new room, opened in 2012, hosts temporary displays, including the chilling facts about 17th century medicine, and the early history of the area.

A major new display opened in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.

There is a free car park! Come and see us.
