Fodor's Review

J. M. Barrie donated the Camera Obscura to the town. The device—a dark room with a small hole in one wall that projects an image of the outside world onto the opposite wall—is one of only three in the country. In a cricket pavilion, it's looking a little ragged these days, but it still affords magnificent views of the surrounding area on clear days.
