A bit of time travel…

Oops. It’s ages since I posted; thought I’d pop up a few pictures from a (fairly) recent event at Avoncroft we went to with a couple of visiting friends.

The museum is always a pleasant place to meander around, and additionally there was a “living history” encampment of the wonderfully named Lace Wars – chance to sample the life of an 18th century Redcoat as the soldiers prepared to quell the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion.  It made for a colourful day!

And for a little correction of the balance, one for the distaff side…
