Visited the erewash Museum the other day with a friend to look at the Sherwood Foresters collection that was on display until December of this year to which I was expecting a little bit more with the regimental Museum being closed for refurbishment. The building as a whole really nice architecture Lee as an old stately home within erewash with the old kitchens sweet shop stables and I really enjoyed the interactive boards that told you the stories of individuals that worked within the house.
