Roamin’ Rex visits Agricultural Museum

#RoaminRex has been to Site No.28 on his map. Agricultural Museum Brook, consists of a 14th century barn, an early 19th century oasthouse and a former stable block. He has seen the collections, most of which date from the time when the power on the farm was provided by oxen, horses or people, though there are one or two slightly more recent items. The specialist nature of the museum, combined with its rural location (with no public transport) does result in rather low visitor numbers, but a large proportion of those who do come leave delighted with what they have seen and the information provided.
