Our Ancient Days are designed to show the public the work that goes on at the centre
throughout the year. Everything we do is determined by the seasons and these days
will showcase the tools and skills that maintain the centre during each season. Come
and talk to the people who have helped to build our structures and maintain the site
– see ancient and traditional skills and crafts and take part in some of them. Our
Ancient Days will be a mixture of demonstrations and “have a go” sessions and always
with something for children to get stuck into!
Homemade teas, cakes and burgers made from locally-reared beef will be available
with proceeds going towards the support of the ATC Volunteers Association
There are toilets and disabled access toilets on site.
