The museum was established in 1977 to salvage the ancient church of St Mary. The church is also the burial spot of Mr. John Tradescent, who is considered to be the first great gardener and plant hunter of British history. The museum went through a refurbishment programme in 2008 when gallery spaces were added to it for exhibitions or events.
