The barn contains a museum dedicated to the work of George Wrightameraafter whom the barn was renamed  in honour of  his vision and tenacity to coordinate the relocation of the barn to become what it is today.


The Countryside Centre is housed within a 290 year old barn, moved from land now lying beneath the Channel Tunnel terminal. It was moved and reconstructed in its current location, next to the Railway Museum.

Young and old will be amazed and reminded of days gone by, with a wide range of tools and household appliances on display from across the years, from saws and scythes to mangles and early sewing machines.


There is also an opportunity to see a variety of crafters, barnrounddemonstrating and talking about traditional crafts.
