Chiltern Open Air Museum Private Tour (with focus on thatch)

September 20 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Chiltern Open Air Museum in Buckinghamshire was founded by volunteers in 1976, and opened to the public in 1981.  The Museum is a charity that rescues threatened historic buildings, which would otherwise be demolished, re-erects and preserves them in a traditional Chilterns landscape.

This private tour will focus on straw and its uses. You will see straw used in a variety of ways, from the stooks of harvested corn, bedding for our lovely goats, thatching material and examples of the skilled craft of straw plaiting.

A delicious cream tea, served after the tour, is included in the price.

All events will comply with government guidelines on Covid-19, applicable at the time.  If any Covid-19 outbreaks occur, or new restrictions are imposed, the event will be cancelled and a full refund given.
