The Village Church Farm
There are a number of traditional indigenous buildings, including:
- A thatched "mud and Stud" cottage, moved from the nearby village of Withern.
- The original 18th-century farmhouse.
- 19th-century stable block
- 19th-century cowshed
The museum holds exhibitions of 19th- and 20th-century farm implements and machinery, and displays about traditional breeds such as the Red Poll cattle, and the Longwool Sheep. There are no beasts on site. It opens daily from Easter to 31 October, and admission is free.
In 2009 Church Farm Museum won the People's Choice Award at the Lincolnshire Renaissance Heritage Awards.
The museum is now re-branded as 'The Village - Church Farm'. Following cuts by Lincoln County Council, and a fire of the mud and stud cottage, it has been run by a charity and has received help from volunteers.
