Church Farmhouse now has three furnished period rooms. The kitchen, set about 1820, has a huge open fireplace containing a clockwork spit jack, a chimney crane and bread oven. A splendid refectory table and oak dresser show off over a hundred Victorian kitchen utensils, including sugar cutters and a knife cleaner. In the scullery the display of laundry equipment includes washing dollies, flat irons and a linen press. The dining room is furnished as it would have been in the 1850s, with a fine oval dining table and the Windsor chairs. This room contains oak panelling dating from the late seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, which once formed a corridor between the stairs and the bedroom of the first floor.

The museum offers a free outreach programme for local schools. It also presents reminiscence sessions for old people's homes and day centres, and talks to local societies and other groups may be arranged.
