  • This is an old hardware store selling a very large range of new and secondhand tools. Out the back of the shop the owners run a heritage museum showing off a very large collection of antique tools, maps and painting. Which is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • Visited here regularly over the last 40 years,, wonderful, selection of tools old and new. Their museum is fantastic. Staff so knowledgeable and friendly.
