Wycombe Museum

As I said a few weeks ago I intended to visit more local museums, so yesterday I went to Wycombe Museum. The museum itself is an exhibit, it is inside a Grade II listed house parts of which date from the sixteenth century, the house is built atop the motte of a former castle built in the twelfth century (hence it's name Castle Hill House).

The museum has a small but interesting collection, mainly from local trades. Wycombe was a major centre of the chair making industry from the eighteenth century onwards. So there are a lot of chairs. I particularly liked the 1920s kitchen.
