Nostalgia and you might learn something. Shows how we used to live and the difference in size of homes from then to now - much larger families then too. Interesting attractions but great when there is something on.

Although it is quite a long way out of town, it depicts historic Ch-ch and I think is un umbrella organisation for a lot of historic re-creation groups. They do well, making Ferrymede diverse. Other attractions are planned. It will grow!
