The courtyard gives access to Granny Baker's Kitchen and the outside staircase that leads up to the Archive Room, the Dulverton Room and the upstairs Gallery.
There is also an entrance to the Ann Keel Room (Permanent Deer Exhibition) and access to the National Park Visitor Centre and Dulverton Library from here. Valuable fund-raising through the sale of plants helps the Centre's finances and plants for sale may be found in the Courtyard as well as outside the main entrance.
Since 2015 the Courtyard
had been developed as an independent open-air exhibition space depicting the
arrival of the railway to Dulverton Station. Stories, photos and memorabilia are
displayed along with fascinating written memories from local people that
regularly once used the train.
This exhibition was
supported by Heritage Lottery Funding and ENPA Partnership Fund
