An interesting small museum of Victorian life. A fascinating boot shaped bath is located on the upper level, reached by a steep staircase. Entry to the museum is free, so making a financial donation should be the thing to do.

A small, free museum run by volunteers with some interesting stuff. There is nothing to make you go 'wow', but it's worth half an hour of your time and deserves support.

A very small museum with free entrance (Donations requested) on two floors. The 1st floor has all the interesting paraphernalia but is hard to access if you have difficulties with steps and a low ceiling. Interesting place to visit for about ½ hour.

Hidden just off Church Street, this museum is crammed with local items - pottery, farming goods, musical instruments, clothes, a large 'boot' bath and so on. Two very small rooms joined by a flight of very steep stairs - but absolutely fascinating.

A suprising find. A house that was given to the parish and is now a tiny museum. Inside are photo's/clothes and historis facts about the Ledbury toll revolution, etc.

Amazing local museum .. the building has been moved to its current location brick by brick. Look upstairs at the boot bath that was wheeled from house to house for residents to use. Free entry .

This tiny museum holds a wealth of local history. How they cram so much in such a tiny house is amazing. It is run by volunteers and is free but a donation should be paid as it is well worth one.
