17th century VILLAGE Little WOODHAM

My uber talented and creative cousin in England is always involved in the most fascinating projects.

During our very quick visit, she told me of her involvement as a volunteer for a preserved 17th century village run by the Gosport Living History Society.  As a living history interpreter, dressed in period costume, they give visitors the experience of rural life in the South of England.Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley

I, of course, was keen to see the preserved village, and I am always interested in how people live and dwellings in general, so what a wonderful opportunity to see…

This is one of two resident foxes – willow – they are in charge of mice control, and are very good at their job. Sorry a little blurry, they are very quick, and I was so excited as I have never seen a fox before. Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley

The Village of Little WOODHAM is maintained by the volunteers and everything that you see is authentically from the mid 1600s. Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley   Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley  Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley

Blacksmith and woodwork demonstrations are some of the activities you may find.  Little Woodham, Decorata Design, sue womersley

How to fix wheels would have been important and this gentleman was showing us how.

Those were the ladies cooking in the first picture, all in their traditional dress.

We also enjoyed card games by a trickster and knitting by his lovely wife.
