A tiny fire house, one of the oldest and smallest in England. Dedicated team of volunteers look after it and welcome passing visitors. Since I live in Stalham, I didn't really travel to visit it; I just strolled along the High Street!

Would urge anyone who is in the area to visit this wonderful little museum. The people who run it are full of knowledge about the contents on display.

Smallest museum, full of interesting things and well looked after by enthusiastic volunteers. If in the area then it's well worth taking a look inside.

Stumbled across this tiny original fire station complete with fire pump and many exhibits related to the fire service. Well presented exhibits and knowledgeable volunteer guide. Free admission. Too tiny to access wheelchair. Very quaint and historic fire house.
