Museum and wedding venue

The home of Erasmus Darwin, (grandfather of Charles Darwin)  during the mid 1700’s.  Among Darwin’s many talents was his extraordinary scientific insight in physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology and all aspects of biology. His theories of biological evolution by means of natural selection, although criticised by the church, were handed down from father to son and to grandson; but it was left to his grandson, Charles, to prove biological evolution. Towards the end of his life he gained recognition as the leading English poet of his day.  The Museum gives an insight into his varied life.  Has a beautiful herb garden to the rear.  Variety of events and activities held here.  See website for opening times.
