Take a trip back to the Victorian era with a visit to Scolton Manor Museum. Built-in 1842 by local architects, this Manor House has been home to generations of the Higgons family (members of whom became county Sheriffs) as well as being used as a hospital during WWII. Since then, the house has been restored to demonstrate Victorian life with an accompanying Visitor Centre, Sculpture Trail, restored Walled Garden and grounds of the Country Estate open to explore.
