(please see the History Page)
Following our month's
closure, for cleaning and maintenance, we are now
open EVERY day from 10 o'clock in the morning
Sadly, due to ill health and the advancing age of the owners, we have decided to sell "How We Lived Then".
Should anyone be interested in buying our Museum it should be noted that the asking price includes the freehold of the entire building, this is the Museum as you see it complete with ALL the fittings and exhibits within the Museum, a very nice owners' flat above and the shop fittings. As usual, only the shop stock is extra (at valuation).
If anyone is interested in receiving further information, kindly contact us.
The Collection appeals to people of all ages. It's pure nostalgia for the older folk and history for the young.
We get visitors from all over the Country and, in fact, from around the World.
Please take the time to browse around this Website.
