The Village Museum

The Earls Barton Museum of Village Life

For many years we have been proud to have given a home to the Earls Barton Museum of Village Life – welcoming so many visitors, some researching family trees, historians, children and families on holiday from all over the world.

‘A cobblers’ life

The museum depicts the lifestyle and industry of a traditional shoe worker, you can find out how shoe workers lived, how they worked and how they shopped. It is a fascinating look at life ‘in the good old days’.

The museum is run by a team of village volunteers who aim to open the museum Mon – Sat 9am-5pm. If you are interested in arranging a school trip, a group visit or to research local history then please pre-arrange your visit by contacting Iona Flannagan on 01604 811735 or one of The Jeyes team will happily help with any requests.
