The National Trust has a little cracker here. The area has a convoluted and interesting history that the town hall plays an important part in. Very interesting.

Nothing really special. But nice staff manning it. I expect children would find it very boring. We spent only ten minutes at the most here.

Small town hall building with historical explanation of why it's there. Not really very much to see and I'd consider it expensive for non national trust members. But gives a point to a walk if you're in that area.

It's tiny, we visited as NT members but would not have gone in otherwise. Lots of info to read and some nice paintings etc. Stayed for about 10 minutes after going to nature reserve..

Not a lot to see, but worth visiting if you are a member and are in the area. Car park with toilets just opposite, but no refreshments. Good nature reserve on same site.
