160 of 365


On June 9th I accompanied The Boy's class on their trip to a Tudor house - my second visit to this amazing house (I went with another class a few years ago, as part of a teaching placement). The location is stunning, and it's so interesting to see how this particular Tudor family lived. The education team there are great, too - we were looked after by three people in Tudor dress, and they told us all about the clothes, food, lifestyle and so on of the residents as well as how the house itself was built.

As part of my packed lunch I took along a prawn and avocado wrap - very nice, but slightly heavy on the avocado and light on the prawns, I'll remember that next time!

Ah, yes, I remember those trips when I was at school. I loved them. The Tudors are still my favourite period of History.

Wow, what a house! I don't know a lot about the Tudors so I know I'd love a tour here.

Is that Little Moreton Hall? I love it! Tho I do remember the day I was there an old man hit his head on a low beam and passed out which made for an interesting guided tour. Great place for a school trip.

What a great house! I remember helping in my kids' primary school and they all had to make their own Tudor costume to go on a 'Tudor Day'. 30 Tudor hats and money belts later ...... how I regretted telling the teacher I was handy with a sewing machine!

I loved our visit to Little Moreton Hall. It was many years ago now but we were treated like the most important people to have visited that day and we have had NT membership ever since
