Real working horses

Come and enjoy a day seeing the Shire Horses and foals, see what working wheelwrights and blacksmith's shops look like. Take a wagon ride, included in the admission price, then perhaps a guided tour, to get the most from the farm and museum. Watch the horses work in the fields as they would have years ago. Then in the museum, see the Fowler 'AA' ploughing engine, amongst other tools of yesteryear. The Shire Horse Farm and associated Carriage Museum were established in 1972. This was the first place to exhibit heavy horses in the country. Relax in our picnic area, maybe have one of our excellent cream teas. Lots of interesting things to see.
