Today we can come home to a house that can often be heated quickly, with the means to cook rapidly and light at the flick of a switch. A walk through the Museum during this weekend will give a better idea of how homes in the past were lit and heated, the resource needed for this and what this meant for everyday life.

A walk through the Museum during this weekend will give a better idea of how homes in the past were lit and heated, the resource needed for this and what this meant for everyday life. With demonstrations of lighting a fire with a flint and steel, talks on woodland management and access as well, as candles and efficient cooking over an open fire.
