About the Stephens Collection

A small museum that tracks the life of Henry 'Inky' Stephens with artefacts and memorabilia from the history of the man, his business and his passions.

Expect a number of glass cases showing off the history of the industrial production of ink and related printing goods.

The site was chosen because the grand house the museum sits within was the founder's private home, which he later donated to the local community.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
