Blists Hill Open Air Museum. There are two buildings of medical interest in this reconstructed town. The Chemist's shop, removed from Bournmouth in 1983, dates from the 19th century and contains a fully equipped dental surgery, though there is no dentist in attendance! Certain items in the chemist shop can be purchased by visitors and there is a most authentic smell about the place. Further along the road, at 2 Furnace Bank, is a doctor's surgery. Adapted from a small cottage,it has a waiting room and consulting room furnished as it would have appeared in the early twentieth century. The cottage originated in Donnington and was re-erected at Blists Hill in 1985.
