Daventry calling! Come and explore the many riches on show. From a Victorian high street water pump to the impressive BBC transmitter panels, you may be surprised by what’s on your doorstep.

There’s a recreated old shop with lots of goodies from the past, and a specially crafted ‘curiosity cabinet’ full of wonderful objects for you to inspect. A perfect outing for the whole family.
