Summer Visit to Little Woodham
Wickham History Society joined with Wickham Society to enjoy a combined summer outing. We visited the Little Woodham Living History Experience, a 17th century village at Gosport.
The villagers were pleased to tell us about their way of life and demonstrate their skills – the potter, blacksmith, weaver, lacemaker, herbalist, innkeeper, and the scribe.
There was also a visit from the pedlar selling his wares.
A fascinating and interesting visit which gave us an idea of daily life in the mid 1600’s and the skills employed by our ancestors in their various trades and crafts.
