Bakewell Old House Museum: This fascinating old house contains a wonderful collection of items from the Bakewell area, displayed to show aspects of local and social history in this part of Derbyshire. The house is the oldest house in Bakewell and itself is of great interest to anyone keen on vernacular architecture. The displays are full of memories and interest for everyone and include a large collection of cameras, and a good collection of local photographs, a facinating costume collection that ranges from early nineteenth century through to the 1930s, Pitts Kitchen, the marble Ashford table top and the history of the Bakewell pudding.
