Manitoba Beaver Colony Visit

Uckfield Manitoba Beaver Colony visited us last night. They had a tour of the house which included smelling herbs growing in our herb garden outside; viewing a Tudor banquet set up in the house and trying out some timber joints like those used by the Medieval carpenters who built Bridge Cottage back in 1436.

All the Beavers then made a jester stick each and practiced their funniest jokes as a jester would have done in a Tudor Royal court to entertain the King or Queen and their guests.
