Bagshaw Museum


Batley, United Kingdom (GB)
This stunning Victorian Gothic former mill owner’s house is set in 36 aces of parkland and ancient woodland. The home of George Sheard from 1875-1902, the house became a museum in 1911 and was named after its first curator, Walter Bagshaw. His daughter, Violet, continued to travel the world and bring back items for the museum until she was over a hundred years old!
