Detailed models of famous buildings and shop windows displaying a century of social history. An Edwardian parlour. Locally famous, multiple life saver, Mary Wheatland a Bathing Machine Proprietor (a 'Bathing Woman' who also taught swimming). You can also step back in time (before the 'telly' took over our lives) into our renowned Wireless Museum, where there are many examples of the first television and wireless sets on display.

Take a stroll back in time to see shop window displays of Pawnbrokers, Hardware, Jewellers, Cobblers and a Toyshop.
