Stockwood Discovery Centre, contains a wide range of historical rural equipment and tools www.lutonculture.com/stockwood-discovery-centre/

Within the grounds is the Mossman Carriage Collection of historical horse-drawn carriages from 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, including early bicycles, and a variety of gardens - Victorian, woodland, and educational/children's gardens with soft play areas and climbing frames, and educational plant areas with descriptions of how the plants from around the world are used. Photos are from May 2009,  and the garden will improve greatly when the plants have matured.
