A small museum attached to the information office .Local artefacts but a display cabinet all about the ' Monocled Mutineer ' is of more general interest.

Interesting and with enough to keep you interested for an hour or so. There were a number of items from WW1 and a number of geological exhibits/

Free to visit. It is very small with a variety of artefacts. As well as the history of the area there is a section on the geology of the Eden valley.
