Founders day will be a truly special day out. We will be joined by volunteers who were here at the opening, they will be on hand around the site to talk to visitors and tell the story of how this wonderful place came to be. In the spirit of Henry Jackson we will be giving arboretum tours to share with visitors the beauty of the hundreds of trees Henry planted around the Museum. Our archive team will have a selection of precious and delicate objects out on display in the village hall and visitors can experience a ride round the site in a trailer behind a steam traction engine.
Come to us for a family day out, relax, wander and explore, bring a picnic and relax in our picnic area (under cover) or pick a spot amongst the trees. Our café also serves a wide range of hot and cold food and drink, our famous sausage rolls and of course treat yourself to a slice of our 50th Birthday cake in the café!’
