Ken’s Great Barns - Places to Visit

Acton Scott Working Far Museum

The Farm at Acton Scott is more or less unchanged from the end of the nineteenth century. It was the setting for the TV series “The Victorian Farm”. It has a superb farmyard, two wings are formed by the dairy and the great barn, which has a wheel house on the back. The other two wings are formed by pig-sties, a granary and other farm buildings. There is a horse gin and a midden in the yard itself.

There are demonstrations of blacksmithing, the work of the wheelwright, ploughing and threshing with steam threshers. The image on the left links to the website.
