Very interesting display and information regarding the plague which hit this part of England. Also there is a display of WW1 pictures and historical facts in relation to local people who fought in the war. A great place to spend an hour or two

Great video to start the tour, stuffed full of facts about the plague, with a couple of side displays about the great war and the local shoemakers Well worth an hour or so of your time.

This is a great little museum. I know it's run by volunteers, but they are so old and so disorganised. They had run out of leaflets for the walk around the village and didn't know where to find anymore. This was at half term when...More

This was a little museum making the most of it's space in telling the story of the plague that (thanks to the effort of the local vicar and noble) was effectively stopped travelling any further. It was really well done and also currently had the...More

What a wonderful surprise. It only costs £2 entry to the museum. When we got into the Museum a 1/4hr film was about to start - an excellent introduction to the background of the village. We spent ages in the museum as we were enthralled...More

As seniors we paid £2 each to visit not expecting to see much. We were wrong! We spent over an hour reading in detail about the plague and it’s residents as well as the shoe industry, mining and residents who served in WW1. Excellent value.

Great little museum about village that was isolated & devastated by plague - interesting exhibits & personal stories & information really bring it home how bad things were. Quite a few things for kids to do surprisingly. Worth an hour of anyone’s time.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. We allow dogs into the museum if they can be carried. Otherwise they can be tied up outside with a bowl of water.

Sorry but have no idea on this. As it`s staffed by volunteers, I would think that there is a good chance that it will be open, but please check with the venue before travelling.
