Museum Accessibility

The Museum is a 5 minute, flat walk from the village car park. Public toilets are located in the National Trust Visitor’s Centre next door and in the main village car park. There is NO parking outside the museum.

Access for wheelchair users has been improved but the museum is an old building on two levels so a stair lift has been fitted (not a chair lift). Those who cannot access the upper floor may view the lower galleries free of charge.
