Cant believe i've lived about a mile away from THIS museum for the last 4 years, and didn't even know it existed until today... Rolling Eyes

It's only open first sunday of each month, and some bank holidays.

Has anyone here been??

Ol.

EDIT: I want one...

Cheers. Thumbs Up

As if, I live 3 miles away (and used to pass Deans Garden Centre a few times a month til last year).. it's not advertised about though is it? Otherwise it'd be known about surely..

I had a ride past last night on my way home, there’s no signs or adverts or anything outside… apparently the BUNGALOW on the right is Dicks house, and you can just see the entrance to the museum behind.

Roll on 31st May !

Holiday Monday. Was it a worthwhile trip?

I’d join you, except looking like a telly tubby on a twin with a straight through exhaust - I think I’d be a little less inconspicuous!

If anyone is interested in visiting the Craven Museum a heads up that on Wednesday 30th June 2010 Dean's Garden Centre (just up the road from Cravens) are having a Bikers Night in aid of St. Leonard's which will include a visit to Cravens Museum (£3.50 entry).
