The house is much the same as it would have been in the early part of the 20th Century and as such it gives you a great insight into the social history of the time. Visits are pre-bookable and the car park is opposite the...More

Enjoyed a short tour around this 3 storey semi detached 1920s house. It was easy to imagine the lady of the house entertaining and the elderly sons living their lives. The volunteers are so friendly and helpful, we also enjoyed a cup of tea there.
