On site there are over 40 buildings to venture into and explore. Including a couple of working mills like wool and saw mills. Then there are trades buildings like blacksmith, cabinetmaker, bakery, and cheese makers. In each of these buildings you can learn how things were done and see demos. There are also farming demos that happen where you can see how heritage vegetables are grown and how livestock were dealt with.
