A wonderful range of buildings, the windmill is a special treat. As well as the range of historic buildings I particularly liked the post war prefab. Well worth a visit!

My friend from work has done this, and won’t stop going on about it. To the point where I’m going to sign myself up. From what he says he had a smashing time, and learnt a lot.
