The richness of the architecture and the craft, domestic and agricultural work are presented in a remarkably successful way. Watch as basket weavers, brush makers, spoon makers and wainwrights show off their skills in regular demonstrations and try them out for yourself in a workshop. The many special events, such as the summer holiday programme, as well as the wide range of things to see all year round mean you’ll want to some back again and again.
