Notice: Please note - as Mr Straw's House is rather cosy, we operate tours by timed ticket which we prefer are booked in advance. If you haven't made a booking, please do call before setting off to avoid disappointment.
A 1920s house captured in time
Step back in time to the 1920s and find out how a grocer's family lived in this market town. This ordinary semi-detached house, with original interior decorations from 1923, was the home of the Straw family.
For 60 years the family threw little away and chose to live without many of the modern comforts we take for granted.
Photographs, letters, Victorian furniture and household objects spanning 100 years can still be seen exactly where their owners left them.
