Set in the heart of historic Barton upon Humber, Baysgarth House is the ancestral home of the prominent Nelthorpe family. Set within 30 acres of parkland this Grade II listed building is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture and is the perfect setting for a family day out. Now a museum, Baysgarth House is now managed by the Community Heritage Arts and Media Project (CHAMP). With a variety of exhibitions held throughout the year, the museum displays reflect the local significance of the house. The main building houses traditional Georgian and Victorian period rooms and a large collection of beautiful 18th and 19th century pottery and porcelain. Visitors can also explore the Industrial Museum located in the old stable block or discover traditional crafts such as thatching, cobbling and blacksmithing in the museums Craft Cottage.
