The first weekend at Riddlesworth Hall and a fun day out at Pleasurewood Hills (Sunday 10th September)
Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse ( Sunday 1st October) Norfolk’s wonderful museum of rural life
This fifty-acre site with its magnificent Georgian workhouse is where the boarders spent time exploring two centuries of life on the land in Norfolk. There were recreations of shops and homes, extensive displays on farming and village life and the popular Collections Gallery to discover. The workhouse has a fascinating story to tell that hits home for all ages. On the traditional working farm the children got up close to some rare breed animals.
It was a thought-provoking day out with a little bit of rain thrown in for good measure.
