We apologise but due to the nature and age of our buildings the main John Moore Museum & Merchant’s House are unsuitable for wheelchair users or visitors with walking difficulties. We do not have a toilet in either building but…there are loos not far away in the Abbey. We do have a small shop where you can buy John Moore’s books and pocket money priced treats.
The ground floor of the Old Baptist Chapel is fully accessible, however, the upstairs can only be reached by stairs. There is a DDA-compliant toilet on the ground floor of the chapel.
