  • As well as being a genuine iron monger/ DIY shop the museum (free entry) is fascinating showing a wealth of tools, devices, memorabilia from the past.

  • World famous Banks', what would Cockermouth be without it? Has a great little, really useful museum. This is the place you go for the 'rough' garden tools you can't get elsewhere, for the beehive accessories . . . the place you take your children for a real world experience. Great folk, great service, should be preserved for posterity.
