Rural life centre
Hands-on Exhibits, Animals, Children's Playground, under 4s free
April 13th & 14th : Working with Wood
The museum will be taken over by The Rustics, the Rural Life Centre’s very own volunteers, to show off their timber handling skills using their vintage tractors. They will be running the stationary engines and demonstrating how to make useable timber from newly felled trees using the Lucas Mill. The milled wood from last year has been used in new building projects on the site including a newly constructed shelter for the museum’s steam roller.
The Rural Life Centre is brimming with artifacts cleverly displayed in their original settings. Over 150 years of village life, farming and rural industry are represented. We cannot detail every aspect of the museum, however we have chosen a taste of what you might discover on your visit, and given some extra information if you would like to know more.
Find out more during your museum visit by scanning our QR codes with your mobile or tablet. This will give you access to interesting images and additional facts about the exhibits.
