The Home and Work Room

Here we focus on trades, hobbies and tools from the past. Don’t miss the fine old Columbia printing press that used to print the Ilfracombe Chronicle, plus a collection of early computers and typewriters. We have a cobblers work bench and Victorian shoes. Look up to the rafters for a collection of ‘big game’ taxidermy and peek into the cupboard of British bats!

Switch on the torch & look in the Doll’s House & see how the Victorians lived
