We were out walking today and found this lovely little visitor centre. Run by volunteers and packed full of all things canal. Fabulous find and well worth a visit. Can't wait to go back and have another look with the rest of my family.

Packed with interesting info and exhibits. Bit cluttered but lots to see. Well worth 75p. Just watch the limited opening hours.
