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.

Do you have something to contribute to the society?
