On the edges of London, within earshot of the M25 can be found a most marvellous museum, housed in an ancient barn.
About Upminster Tithe Barn - Museum of NostalgiaThe Barn dates from 1450 and was part of an estate that supported the Abbey of Waltham. The Abbott's hunting lodge next door was later converted to a private house and is now home to Upminster Golf Club.
It wasn't until 1976 that the Barn was refurbished and then opened as an agricultural museum.
Nowadays it is called "The Upminster Tithe Barn Museum of Nostalgia" and houses a broad display of domestic items from the last century as well as agricultural machinery.
It is open on occasional weekends throughout the year.
