Accessibility

The museum is a Grade 1 building, which restricts our ability to make changes. Nevertheless, our aim is to improve and develop the museum for visitors who cannot access the house. Any feedback is welcome.

 

Current Access

  • Throughout the entire building the floors are mainly original, and are therefore uneven. Outside the building the floor is cobblestone. 

  • There are steps in and out of many of the rooms and galleries. On the ground floor ramps have been installed to grant access.

  • The main stairs to the upper two floors are a spiral staircase built around a ships mast. the steps themselve are steep and triangular in shape, being wide on the outside of the step. There is a solid handrail on the wall alongside the wider step and a rope along the mast for grip. 
  • Another set of stairs to the first floor only can be accessed in the kitchen, at the rear of the main building. This short but steep staircase gives access to the gallery.
  • There are steps to reach up to the Garden and Archive at the rear of the museum.

Current Facilities

  • Museum volunteers are able to assist and welcome visitors.
  • Additional information about museum content is available upon request.
  • There is seating available in some galleries.
  • There are some open displays where handling objects is encouraged.
  • The kitchen can be accessed via the passageway alongside the left side of the museum.
