The Nissen hut in which the Dairy and The Old Curiosity Shop is housed was acquired

after WWII when many such buildings were military surplus and erected on the present

museum site. It had remained as a store room for many years but during 2004 it was

completely refurbished, a concrete floor laid and fitted out as you see it today.

The farm originally contained its own dairy at the north east end of the Farm

house, in the coolest possible position. The products of the dairy were used mostly

for consumption on the farm. In the early years the work force would have been quite

considerable, with unmarried men 'living in' at the farm house. The room has a selection

of implements that would have been used in the dairy for making the various dairy products
