Seeking Museums: 19th Century Life (Peak Districk, Lake District)

Jump to last reply

Hi, UK Fodorites.

I wonder if anyone local has reccos for museums that highlight 19th century England--in/near areas where I'll be this fall? I've found the Red House Stables/Carriage Museum in Matlock, which looks interesting. Anyone been?

I'll be in Matlock (Peak District) for a couple days and then based in Keswick (Lake District) for several days.

I would be interested in almost anything, but of special interest is agricultural practices, but also textiles, coal mines, schools, manufacturing, transportation. If anyone's heard of or been to any interesting historical sites/museums, I'd be most grateful for the info.

Thanks all!
