Built around 1906, and in use until 1986, the building was the local auction market for livestock and, as such, the hub of the local agricultural community. In 1991 it reopened as a museum of local heritage and agriculture. Its displays feature the original auction ring and animal storage areas, with other rooms laid out as old shops and craft workshops, a schoolroom, kitchen and dairy. Displays of tractors and agricultural implements sit alongside objects depicting domestic life of days gone by. It has been described by visitors as being like a 'Tardis' - with thousands of fascinating objects to see.
