We drive past this each week on our way to swimming and the boys have been asking lots of questions so when the chance came up for a visit we jumped at it!

What an absolute gem of a place. This was where the Italian Prisoners of War came during World War 2. They were housed here before going out onto the local farms etc to work. The whole place with its history and buildings was fascinating and the guide was superbly knowledgeable. One of the accommodation buildings was turned into a church by the Italian prisoners of war and wow!! Just wow!!

All the paints are made from natural pigments, for example onion skins and tannins from tea or clay and fish bones and these are now 80 years old!! Definitely worth a visit and they add the upcoming ones to their Facebook page here
