Ancient High House: The house retains an extensive collection of period furniture and architectural features. It is also the home of the Staffordshire Yeomanry Museum.


In 1986 the house opened as a museum and now provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people who have lived there over the centuries. Visit the Civil War Room where King Charles 1st and Prince Rupert stayed during their brief visit to the town, view the Stuart Bedroom with its magnificent four poster bed, admire the elegant splendour of the Wallpaper Room with its Georgian displays, visit Mr. Marson in his Edwardian Shop, and observe the grand comfort of the Victorian Room.


The attic floor is home to the Staffordshire Yeomanry Regiment Museum, founded in 1794. As a local volunteer force the Yeomanry saw active service for over 200 years. The extensive range of items on display reflects their illustrious and distinguished history.
