Learning Programmes:
The museum is a treasure trove of local artefacts, objects, documents, books, maps, photographs, and paintings with interest for Key Stages 2 to 4 plus.  We are keen to make its resources available for educational purposes for investigative, observational, inspirational and research studies across the curriculum.
