Another great day had by all at our ‘Living History Day’

Monday 22nd August we were pleased to host another 16/17th Century Living History day. Our visitors were able to experience life during the Tudor and Stuart period.

Our medicine room shared cures for common illnesses. A particular favourite was a cure for bad hearing: a grey eel with a white belly left to rot in a clay pot of horse dung for 2 weeks. Then the oil was extracted and placed in the ear! Interestingly none of our visitors volunteered to try this remedy!

Join us at our next Living History day next Wed 31st Aug 10am-3pm. £5/adult, £2/child. Children’s quiz trail, treasure dig and colouring competition available. Teeth pulling, urine tasting FREE!
