On the Museum site, in addition to the main buildings of the Barn and the Oast where the exhibits are displayed, there is a large grassed area suitable for picnic meals or for just sitting in the sun. Adjacent to the barn there is a stable block, which has been converted to include a small kitchen, toilets and a meeting room.
There is a conventional toilet and also one for the disabled with an adjacent basin to wash your hands.
There is an urn and electric kettle plus mugs that can be used to serve hot drinks.
The room is reasonably large and has tables and chairs that can be laid out in conference style or for an audience. There is a large white board on the wall and also a pull down screen onto which the AV projector, hanging from a cross beam, can project DVD’s or output from a laptop. All the necessary connections are there.
The cost of hiring the room is £6 an hour for non-commercial and £10 an hour for commercial use and can be booked by contacting the curator.
The converted stable block can be accessed from the car park at the end of the barn or from the grassed area behind the barn where there are steps. Disabled visitors can use a ramped path from the car park.
The Museum has an audio tour, which enables visitors to be guided around the exhibits with the aid of a recorded commentary. This has facilities for moving both forwards and backwards amongst the exhibits as it follows the route which the curator or other helpers take on a guided tour.
