““Outstanding Volunteer Run Museum” – but don’t take our word for it, this is the verdict of Renaissance North East and the Arts Council for England who have also awarded the museum full accreditation. This small folk museum is packed with fascinating stories from the past including a hands on lead-miner’s kitchen and The Weardale Tapestry, a beautiful 16 foot free-style embroidery depicting Weardale’s history. To commemorate those who served in World War 1 the Museum has assembled a special display to remember ever soldier from Weardale who died with stories, images and artefacts illustrating the lives of many individuals. Visit also the historic and beautiful High House Chapel, the oldest Methodist Chapel to have held continuous weekly services since it was built in 1760, and one of John Wesley’s favourite chapels.”

“For those interested in history, Georgian landscapes and royal connections. The old hall is a ruin but the chapel remains in tact and is a stunning and rare example of its type. The grounds are mainly woodland and include a riverside walk where otters kingfisher and dipper are often seen. Row deer can be spotted in the woods and over head red kite and common buzzard are regularly seen. The skyline walk takes you from Snipes Dene up onto the estate farm then back down into Westwood. They have two cafes one near the chapel and another in the centre of the estate in the converted stable block. There is a book shop, toilets, history room and nature room at the stables.”
