Gift Aid

We would be very grateful if you would consider making a Gift Aid declaration when you visit. It is at no extra cost to yourself and takes seconds to tick the box. Gift Aid is a government scheme, which enables charities to reclaim the basic rate tax you have paid as a UK taxpayer, this is an extra 25p for every £1 of the total paid.

This extra income is very important to small independent museums like ourselves and helps ensure that we can continue to keep Yorkshire’s farming history and heritage alive for future generations.

Whilst we make every effort to make our site accessible and wheelchair friendly, the nature of some of the outdoor areas and the surfaces of the trackways may present difficulties for those requiring certain kinds of mobility aid or wheelchair. A number of our main tracks have loose gravel surfaces and some surfaces in the Viking village can be slippery in wet weather.

Certain areas of the Nature Trail are inaccessible in bad weather. Please ask at reception for details when you visit.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss any particular access requirements or issues.
