A Multi Period History

This last weekend we had the 'No Name' re-enactors demonstrating onsite.
The group demonstrated different crafts and told stories of how people lived from Iron age up to Medieval times.
This included wood turning on a pole lathe, weapon and tool making, story telling, weaving and net making.

 We also had re-enactors occupying our Iron Age Roundhouse!

 We welcome the group back over August Bank Holiday weekend.
