Acton Scott historic working farm

Yesterday I visited Acton Scott and its historic working farm, which you may know from the television series The Victorian Farm.

As its website says, it:
offers a fascinating insight into rural life at the turn of the 19th century, as farm life unfolds daily and the land around is worked by heavy horses. There are demonstrations of period skills and visits from the Wheelwright, Farrier and Blacksmith, providing a picture of life as it might have been on a Victorian country estate.
The former School House, originally built by Frances Stackhouse Acton in the late 19th century, has been recently restored and is now a charming cafe.
