Quirky days out and attractions in Worcestershire

The Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings

If history is your thing, you might enjoy a wander around the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Stoke Heath.

Atlas Obscura says: “IN 1963, A MEDIEVAL HOUSE in the town of Bromsgrove was scheduled for demolition to make way for a bypass until a local landowner decided to step in to save it. The house was painstakingly deconstructed, its parts labelled and packaged and shipped off to be reassembled in a field outside the town.

“The 1960s were a particularly brutal time for Britain’s historic buildings, as many remarkable structures were bulldozed in the name of progress to make way for shopping malls and motorways, and soon a number of other doomed buildings from all over the English Midlands and Wales followed the same fate.

“This assortment of saved structures became the basis for the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings, which opened to the public in 1967. Today, it’s a slightly surreal menagerie of oddball buildings gathered in a field, sharing little in common except for their salvations.”

You can expect to see 30 exhibits in 19 acres of parkland if you go to visit. Find out more via the Atlas Obscura website.

Visitors have shared their experiences on Google Reviews where the museum has a 4.6/5 rating.

One said: “That was fantastic. Didn't expect to see so many historic buildings. Also, here is probably the largest collection of the phone boxes. There are many spots for the picnic so it can be a nice place to visit a visit with kids. And most important for me it is dog friendly.”

Another commented: “Spent 3 fabulous hours chatting to reinactors and admiring all the efforts they go to. Fab place to visit. Even the teenagers enjoyed it!”

The Mug House

Location: Claines Lane, Claines, WR3 7RN

Fancy some pub grub? This pub dates back to the 15th century and it’s location is among the things that make it quirky.

Atlas Obscura explains: “The position of the pub is such that one has to walk through, or very near, the graveyard of the church in order to access it. It is one of only two pubs in England to be situated on consecrated ground.”

Visitors have reviewed the pub on Google Reviews where it has a rating 4.6/5 rating.

One said: “Lovely old pub that is one of only 2 in the country whereby the pub is within the boundary of a church! Ask them about it’s history - fascinating!”

Another said: “This is a truly quirky place set in a church yard, very traditional no local ale on tap but what was on offer was well kept and served with a smile. Food was standard fayre which was perfect for this type of country pub. Worth a visit but be warned it is small so good weather visit is preferable to get a seat!”
