The grade 2* listed Long Shop is belived to be the first purpose built assembly line building in the world. It was restored on a very limited budget when the Museum was first established in xxxx, but time has taken its toll and the building now needs a significant amount of work to prevent further decay and to protect the museum objects that it houses. The works required include:

  • Re-tiling and re-felting the roof
  • Replacing the lead work
  • Repointing some of the walls
  • Repair or replace various windows and doors
