The society set up a museum in the Sexton's cottage at the rear of the Chapel of St Lawrence. In 1982 the museum moved to the present library building where it has a display area, storeroom and offices. Only a proportion of its items can be on display at any one time, but items from the museum storeroom can be studied by arrangement with the museum staff.
