Agricultural Museum, Brook
The Museum is sited in a magnificant and historically important 14th century barn, an early 19th century oast house and part of a Victorian stable block which houses modern toilets, an offics/store-room and an education room with audio-visual facilities.
Most of the site, which also includes a secure grassed area suitable for picnic meals, is fully or reasonably accessible to disabled visitors, but this does not include the first floor of the oast house. The collections concentrate on the agriculture of Kent, mainly in the period when horses and oxen provided the power on the farm.
Included in the collections are large items such as wagons, seed drills and reapers, smaller equipment associated with farming and allied crafts and a wide range of small tools and other relevant items.
We have a small handbook to help visitors who wish to look round on their own and also an audio tour provided on an MP3 player for use by those who would like some help other that that of a person al guide. Many, but not all, of our volunteer helpers can provide personal guided tours, and these are always arranged for group visitors.
