The museum


Probably stands on the site of the 'noble hall' created in the days of Abbot Walter de St Edmunds (1233-46), when Kettering was one of the most valuable possessions of Peterborough Monastery.

In 1720 John Bridges wrote 'Mr Sawyer's house, in which are old stone window frames, was formerly the Abbot's House'. The present building, though restored, has some seventeenth century features behind an eighteenth century facade.
