    Further Details

    Celebrate a traditional Lammas Day with our resident Tudors. Make your own salt dough Lammas loaf, enjoy Tudor storytelling, music and more. Lammas, or “loaf mass”, celebrates the first wheat harvest of the year. On Lammas Day a special loaf of bread was baked and taken to the local church to be blessed. The loaf was then brought back to the farm and broken into four pieces. A piece was placed in each corner of a barn to ensure the newly harvested grain was protected. All activities are included in the entrance fee so if you have a valid ticket, you can come back for free!
