This may be a small museum, but it gives a wonderful insight not only into the gas industry but also the history of Fakenham.
The 'gas' section allows you to see all the processes for converting coal to gas, including a gasometer, retort house tar pit etc. In the former offices you will also find fine displays from cookers, and other gas appliances, meters, mantles, heaters, and even irons.
The local history section is also of interest and features when Fakenham was bombed during the war, the railways, print industry, and much, much more.
Entrance is free, but donations are welcome to keep the museum afloat. Opening times are limited as it is run by volunteers.
