Welcome to our website
Nestled in a row of historic timber-framed buildings, the museum was established in 1980 in memory of the writer and naturalist John Moore.
Today it is also home to an extensive Natural History collection featuring specimens of the mammals and birds native to our countryside, woodlands and wetlands.
A few doors away is The Merchant's House, a two storey building which has been beautifully restored and furnished to show the construction of a 15th century shop and dwelling.

Visiting the Old Baptist Chapel
The John Moore Museum has recently taken over the management of the Old Baptist Chapel. At present the access to this enigmatic building is run separately to the rest of the museum and viewing requires an appointment. A tour is generally possible with as little as 5 minutes notice, Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm. However to avoid disappointment we strongly advise as much notice as possible to visit this fascinating building.
To arrange a visit please call us on 01684 297 174 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
