|The Chapel was donated to the Society in 1974, and they opened their Museum in 1979. Close by is an 18C cottage which was in a poor state and due for demolition. The Society also purchased this property and, with the aid of Heritage Lottery Funds, in 2004 it was fully refurbished.
The Chapel houses the main mueum artefacts, with "Curiosity Cottage", now furnished as an early 20C cottage, used for education as well as part of the museum. An Archive Room has been established for care and preservation of historical documents and photographs.
Both buildings stand next to Beacon Hill, a 12th century Norman Motte. Under the care of English Heritage, this is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
Currently opens on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons from April to September 2.30 to 4.30, or by prior arrangement.
