Accessibility around the site

The entrance to Headstone Manor and Museum is through the Small Barn which is sloped and has two, wide manual doors to get in. Please let staff or the Duty Manager in the Visitor Centre/The Moat Cafe know if you require any assistance opening the doors.

There are five buildings on the Headstone Manor and Museum site. The Great Barn, Small Barn and Visitor Centre/The Moat Cafe are all wheelchair accessible. The ground floors of the Manor House and Granary are also wheelchair accessible.

The Manor House is a Grade 1 listed historic building and houses the main museum. It has several rooms with a small step up in the doorway as well as some low thresholds and uneven floors in places. The Manor House contains a platform lift to take visitors up to the first floor but the doorway leading out of the lift room is only 70cm wide. There is a small step into one room upstairs, and there are two rooms which can only be accessed via a staircase with a rope handrail.

Images of all the rooms and all the Museum displays on the first floor can be viewed on a handheld tablet available from the first room in the Manor House. The handheld tablets also enable you to listen to the main museum displays being read aloud. Large text documents of all permanent panels are available. Please ask a member of staff or volunteers if you would like to view these.

Staff and volunteer hosts will be happy to assist visitors where possible.
