Bassetlaw Museum

The Drawing Room

In a room restored to its original Georgian splendour, explore how Amcott House changed from an opulent dwelling to a museum. Local collector, Lewis Wyse, pioneering photographer Stephen Pegler and Retford photographer Edgar Welchman are some of the people we meet on the way.
