If you want your visit to have a different focus, please contact us and we will do our best to meet your specific requirements.
The House on Crutches and the Railway Museums are housed in small historic buildings. We welcome large groups, but we recommend that a visit is booked to all three sites in smaller groups so that everyone can be accommodated.
Our volunteers can visit your school or organisation to talk about our work, show documents, pictures or artefacts. We can also introduce some of our recent research topics, such as the African’s Grave or Bishop’s Castle Bowling Club which occupies the site of the keep of the former castle, and is part of a scheduled ancient monument.
