The Nautical Museum is a fascinating ‘tardis like’ building. This tiny museum originates from the discovery of the 18th century armed yacht, the ‘Peggy’, walled up in her boat cellar and now seen as being of 'extraordinary' maritime importance on the National Historic Ships Register.
Things to see and do:
- Discover the Peggy and why she remained undisturbed for over 100 years.
- Listen to the fascinating stories of Captain George Quayle.
- Visit the Sailmaker’s Loft and see the many tools of this intricate trade.
- See model boats, fishing equipment and fascinating photographs.
- Take a seat in the Cabin Room built in the form of a naval warship of Nelson’s day.
- Encounter secret trap doors, panels, and architectural jokes.
- Learn about the ancient vault next door.
