Cliffe Castle was originally the spectacular mansion of the local Victorian millionaire and textile manufacturer, Henry Isaac Butterfield. It stands in attractive hillside grounds with greenhouses, a garden centre, aviaries and a children’s play area. The house is now a large museum with a wide variety of displays. These include an array of glittering minerals, local rocks and fossils (including a 2 metre long fossil amphibian), mounted birds and local mammals, original furnished rooms with chandeliers, William Morris stained glass, old dolls, toys and domestic items and a programme of temporary exhibitions.

We new we could rely on @ExploreWellcome to provide the spooky goods for today's @artukdotorg #OnlineArtExchange! Possibly even creepier knowing these people roamed the streets... This is "A Physician Wearing a Seventeenth-Century Plague Preventive Costume" by unknown artist. https://t.co/Onkjic9ZOk
